Tinea pedis: See a physician as it is difficult to diagnose skin lesions without an exam. My guess is tinea pedis, a fungal infection of the feet. It causes an itchy, red, often rash in these warm, moist areas of your body.
Jock itch gets its name because it is common in people who sweat a lot, as do athletes. It usually respond to topical anti fungals cream.
