In brief: It could be...

The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist.

In brief: Fungus

Probably a fungus infection of the area commonly called tinea.
Treatment: refrain from picking at the area. Dry area after shower/bathe. Over the counter Lamisil (terbinafine) at apply twice daily to the area.
