Athlete's foot: Itching and skin flaking on the foot is characteristic of athlete's foot which is caused by fungus. There are various over the counter remedies for the fungus at the pharmacy but often you need prescription medication to get rid of it. The fungus lives in your shoes so you need to treat them as well. See a podiatrist if it doesn't get better with over the counter medication. ...Read more

Other causes are eczema, contact dermatitis, pitted keratolysis, erythrasma and others. I would recommend an over the counter antifungal. If this fails seek help from a podiatrist or dermatologist. ...Read more
