Tinea pedis is a fungal skin infection involving the feet. It is more common in people wearing occlusive footwear in hot and humid weather. It presents as an itchy scaling rash on the soles and between the toes. There can be scaling and painful fissures ( deep cracks in skin) too. It is advisable to see a doctor for some topical anti-fungal and to wear open-toe shoes till the infection has cleared.
