Thanks for writing to us.
From the description provided, i could think of two possibilities- pompholyx( a type of eczema) and tines pedis( fungal infection).
These two can only be differentiated by a proper clinical examination. The treatment in both the cases is different tinea would require an antifungal while pompholyx will require steroid cream.
I would advise that you meet a dermatologist for an examination based treatment.
Take care
