In brief: Fungus?

There are multiple reasons for itchy feet.
A common cause however, is athlete's foot, aka tinea pedis One of the most common presentations is dry, ashen feet, with small "scales" on the plantar surface of feet, extending up the sides. It may/ may not extend between the toes. I would still recommend that you visit a Podiatrist for a thorough evaluation, as your particular cause may be different.

In brief: Itchy feet

If only your feet are itchy, it suggests some local irritation and/or allergic reaction from foot wear. Occasionally some disturbance in the sweating mechanism is at fault.
See a dermatologist if you can't pinpoint the problem.

In brief: Athletes foot.

Most likely cause is athletes foot fungus.
Keep feet clean and dry. You can try an over the counter anti fungal cream such as Lamisil (terbinafine). If condition does not clear in 1-2 weeks see a Podiatrist.

In brief: Athletes Foot

Athlete’s foot, also called tinea pedis, is a fungal infection that affects the skin on the feet and can spread to the toenails and sometimes the hands.
The fungal infection is called athlete’s foot because it’s commonly seen in athletes. Other reasons can cause itchy feet but this is the most common. Go to the pharmacy and pick up fungal cream and if that does not help then see your doctor.
