white patches on feet?

the skin on the bottom of my feet turns white when wet. its only the skin on my heel, ball, instep and beneath my toes that does this. i use a pumice stone and moisturize, but no doctor has been able to help. i have not idea what this could be, the doctor says the skin is healthy and that there is a good blood flow. i really want this to go away, its so embarrassing.

you have hyperhydrosis: increase sweating of the feet.
the extra moisture causes the skin to look whitish.  i recommended soaking your foot in epson salts and warm water to dry out the feet.  then, spray anti-perspirants to the soles of your feet to keep them from oversweating.  if that doesn't work, buy drysol (which can be purchased online or at any drug store)...apply this nightly b/f going to sleep
