Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Subjects in Each Treatment Group With Therapeutic Success [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Both Mycological Cure (KOH wet mount negative and fungal culture negative) and Clinical Cure were required to achieve Therapeutic Success

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Proportion of Subjects With Mycological Cure [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Mycological Cure (KOH wet mount negative and fungal culture negative

  2. Proportion of Subjects With Clinical Cure [ Time Frame: 6 weeks ]
    Clinical Cure was defined as a signs and symptoms score of <1 for erythema; <1 for scaling; and 0 for pruritus, maceration, fissuring/cracking, and burning/stinging; as well as an assessment that no additional antifungal therapy was required to treat the subject's current episode of tinea pedis
