In brief: See your doctor:

If it's not athlete's foot, a correct diagnosis is key to taking care of the cracked, dry skin on your feet with the appropriate treatment.
Cracked, dry skin can be caused by various conditions, such as general dry skin, allergic reactions, eczema, and other forms of dermatitis or even a bacterial infection.
