This is a severe inflammation of the skin. When the inflammation is this severe, it is usually better to be seen by your doctor. You can try to ease the inflammation with an antihistamine, such as in the allergy medicine, along with a topical hydrocortisone cream, which is the best that can be done over the counter, but this is frequently not effective and it will be necessary to see your doctor.
Soaking the foot in warm water to which salt has been added (table salt or Epsom salt) may help to soften and remove the flaking skin. Many people find that soaking in bleach is more irritating than helpful.
