In brief: contact dermatitis?

How big an area? It is possible that contact with something in shoe is causing a contact dermatitis.
Could wear organic cotton socks to prevent contact and cover lining of shoe with cork. Possibly vit d oil topically would be healing. It could be midly infected if sore. Bactroban (mupirocin) is a helpful anti-bacterial can soak in vinegar is not irritating as an anti-fungal. If doesn't heal go to md.
