Tinea or eczema: This can be caused by tinea ("athlete's foot") - a dermatologist can find out with a simple test. If the test is negative, it is usually a type of eczema, or more rarely a type of psoriasis. Try an otc antifungal cream and softening agent such as amlactin. If that doesn't work, see a dermatologist for a precise diagnosis.
