Rash: Can you send a picture? Rash can be caused by so many different things, from mosquito bites to allergic reaction. Other characteristics that are important for diagnose is if it itches or painful. If you had it before. More or less you should have your family doctor, dermatologist or podiatrist take a look.

Rash: An exam is indicated as it is so very difficult to answer this type of question without that.

To start with...: It may be athlete's foot. The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www.Thorlo.Com/]. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist.
