Itchy feet, dry, cracked and red, sweating feet. Eczema?

My husband comes home from work everyday with the tops of his feet itching like crazy, of course he does tend to scratch it. It looks dry and cracked and very red. He says his feet do sweat during the day though we ve tried different shoes. He always takes a shower as soon as he gets home and once he s resting a clear fluid seeps out. We ve tried athletes feet spray but doesn t seem to work. Could this be excema? Or what could this be?

HI,
HE SEEMS TO SWEAT A LOT, SO HE SHOULD CHANGE HIS SOCKS DAILY, REPLACE IT WITH WASHED SOCKS... DAILY FOR WORK. AS U SAID HE MIGHT BE HAVING FUNGAL INFECTION [athletes feet ]/ HYPER-HYDROSIS/ ECZEMA. NOTHING MUCH CAN BE DONE IF IT`s HYPER-HYDROSIS.. IN VERY SEVERE CASES.. SYMPATHECTOMY WILL BE DONE BY SURGEON.
HE NEED TO MAIN GOOD HYGIENIC PRACTICES.
