Thanks for your question.

Do you want to know what tablets can be taken to treat athlete's foot ?

As I have not received a reply from you and your question is not clear I will go ahead and answer it as per my understanding of the question.You may reply back if you need any clarification.

Most athlete's foot infections respond well to topical antifungal agents but some lesions form a thick layer of hard tissue which does not allow penetration of the applied anti fungal agent.In these case oral tablets may need to be used in addition to topical agents.

The favored drugs to be taken orally include itraconazole, terbinafine and fluconazole.You will need a doctor's prescription to get these drugs.
