Specializes in Infectious Disease

You could consider a trial of athlete's foot spray (usually lotrimin or tinactin spray) which are active against yeasts,e.g. Candida albicans. It is a moist environment that allows for growth of these fungi on the skin of the feet. Give it a try for the next few days and determine if it settles down. Otherwise, see a physician.
