Brief Answer:
Could be due to an allergic reaction

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. It could be due to an allergic reaction. I would request you to upload image of the affected area of the feet. It will help me to evaluate the condition. Taking some antiallergic like cetirizine or benadryl should help. You could also apply some emollient like calamine lotion or some moisturizer like aloe vera lotion.

I would await your response based on which I will guide you further. Let me know if I could help further.

hi Doctor he just has pain. I don't see anything on his feet that I can take picture. coincidence was that after eating cake he had pain on the root canal tooth which was done 3 months before and the pain subsided after I brushed his teeth. and at night in sleep he complained about the feet pain. when I was pressing on the feet he was feeling good.
