Inclusion Criteria:

  • presence of tinea pedis caused by dermatophytes on one or both feet, characterized by physician's global assessment score of 2 ("notable signs and symptoms exist") or 3 ("prominent signs and symptoms exist") at baseline;
  • the physical examination must be without other disease findings unless the investigator considers an abnormality to be irrelevant to the outcome of the study;
  • female volunteers of childbearing potential must either be surgically sterile (hysterectomy or tubal ligation) or agree to use a reliable method of contraception with a failure rate of less than 1 % per year when used consistently and correctly such as implants, injectables, combined oral contraceptives, some intra uterine devices [IUDs], sexual abstinence or vasectomized partner;
  • patients must be willing and able to comply with the requirements of the trial protocol;
  • written informed consent obtained.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • patients with hyperkeratotic chronic plantar tinea pedis (moccasin type);
  • receiving systemic therapy with cytotoxic or immunosuppressive drugs either concurrently or within 12 weeks before the baseline visit;
  • oral antifungal therapies within three months before study entry (8 months for oral terbinafine), systemic antibiotic or corticosteroid treatment, topical corticosteroids within 30 days before study entry;
  • patients with diabetes;
  • patients with compromised circulation;
  • evidence of drug or alcohol abuse;
  • pregnancy or nursing;
  • symptoms of a clinically significant illness that may influence the outcome of the study in the four weeks before the treatment phase and during the study;
  • participation in the treatment phase of another clinical study within the last four weeks prior to the first administration of investigational drug in this study;
  • known allergic reactions to components of the study preparations, hypersensitivity against cetylstearyl alcohol;
  • treatment with systemic or locally acting medications which might counter or influence the study aim within two weeks before the treatment phase of the study (e.g. glucocorticosteroids);
