In brief: Most like fungus

It is probably a fungal infection.
Use a good topical antifungal as labeled, i like Lamisil (terbinafine), but most will work. If this does not improve in a week or two or gets worse, see your podiatrist or dermatologist for an evaluation. Dr. L.

In brief: Several things

You may have an athletes foot infection, but it could be a bacgterial infection.
Should be seen by a doctor to determine specific cause.
