In brief: Immersion

The skin is soaked and needs to dry out.
It could laso be reaction to color of shoe. A peeling cream containing urea combined with a topical steroid will remove the dead skin and calm the inflammation. Fungus can develop under these conditions especially between the toes and at the end of the nails. If it begins to deelop a topical antifungal cream should e added.
