A   powder for les 'mycoses'
I have one called 'econazole' (for a fungal infection of folds of the skin after chemotherapy) which would  do the job

The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of the majority of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible.

Don't run so much so you won't catch it.

Ask in the pharmacie for products for le pied d'athlete or la mycose des pieds.
Or see your doctor who may refer you to a dermatologist.

Reminded by Nomoss and his cellulose insulation, make a solution of borax and water as a foot soak.

PS stop wearing training shoes so much, not only will you not look like an athlete, Smile [:)] but feet perspire so much in those and once it's in the shoe you'll aways get it unless you disinfect the shoes too
