oh, no help, but marking my place as I'm in the same boat. Apart from trying to be an athlete.

I got this (athelete - me? hah!), and my midwife said the 1% Canestan (or unbranded equivalent) was fine. So I got a tube of that over the counter at the local pharmacy. But as with all things, I guess I would check with your health provider. I used it sparingly (twice a day, but stopped as soon as I possibly could). Naturally the bloody itchy toes came back, so I had to use it again... Anyway, little fella is due mid October and seems to have come to no harm according to all the usual scans/tests and whatnot.

Canestan or tea-tree oil is just an anti-fungal if applied to the skin (not ingested). It's not going to do any damage.
