In brief: Tinea pedis

You can always start with a topical over the counter medication like Clotrimazole (ask you pharmacist to direct you to it).
Apply twice daily. If your symptoms don't begin to improve in a week or two you might need a prescription for this.

In brief: Many possibilities

There are many things that could cause the skin to itch.
Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
