In brief: Antifungals.

Athlete's foot is a fungal infection in the skin of your feet.
It can happen between toes and along the soles of your feet. Change your shoes regularly and let them air out. Keep your feet clean, wear cotton socks, dry between your toes after showering, and use an antifungal cream on your feet. Some cases require a prescription, so see your doctor if things don't improve in a few weeks.

If the itch keeps you up at night you could try OTC oral benadryl, not the cream
