That is one interpretation. Using that interpretation, you'd use the "mass" form of the plural, "athlete's foot". However, I interpret that as "most types of" which requires the other plural form, "athlete's foots", but you have to forgive the manufacturor for not putting that on the tube because they'd get too many letters from people who aren't used to advanced English.
