Get it checked: Get it checked by your doctor or a dermatologist it may be scabiees will cause itching other parts of body. Most of time itchy feet are due to sweating of the feet and moistening of the same other causes are athletes feet due to fungus infection called tinea pedis. Tungiasis caused by cotagion infection with pathogen called tunga contact dermatitis other rare causes.
