f you have an itch from the foot fungus, that should get better within a few days. To clear it can take up to two weeks. Then you want to keep using the powder in the shoe to help absorb any moisture and sweat from the foot, and also change your shoes more frequently. Don't wear the same shoes everyday, because that again can create an environment where that fungus grows more readily.
