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.

Athletes foot: Almost always, itching feet involve times pedis or athletes foot, a fungal infection. It is often accompanied by small blisters or papules, re rash, flaky skin etc, but not always. See ur podiatrist or start w otc Lamisil (terbinafine) cream twice daily for two wks. If it persists, def see ur podiatrist or dermatologist to rule out another dermititis.
