sounds like you have a bad case of athlete's feet with a secondary staff infection.
i would apply a topical antifungal cream (eg: lamisil) twice daily to the lesions for 4 consecutive weeks.  you also should be soaking the feet in epson salt and water daily to help dry out the feet.  lastly, you need a prescription for an antibiotic to help with the infection (keflex).
i would go see a podiatrist to confirm my speculations.
keeping the feet dry is key.  however, you want to get evaluated to make sure that the lesions are not caused from contact dermatitis.

@ Yena H Do: What do you think about special cedar soles? Do these insoles (eg Zederna) also help? I read that the cedarsoles are very helpful against sweaty and smelly feet.
