In brief: Possibly Fungus

You should have your feet examined for the possibility of tinea pedis (athlete's foot).
A simple office procedure can confirm the diagnosis. If proven, the appropriate anti-fungal cream may be prescribed. Wearing shoes that absorb sweat and provide adequate ventilation will reduce the chance of recurrence.
