In brief: Athletes foot
Proving that you have athlete's foot is the first issue.
See a board certified dermatologist to ensure that it is not a bacterial infection (athelete's foot is a fungus). Dyshidrotic eczema is often misdiagnosed as athlete's foot and there are other conditions that can cause peeling, dryness etc. There are medicated creams and lotions and prescription pills but keeping the feet dry is important.
