It sounds as if it is a fungal infection but in all probability you and your husband are not treating adequately and you are re-infecting each other.
Please go together to a podiatrist insist that they do a scraping from each of you to confirm and then treat both of you for as long as necessary.
Also common areas such as bathroom carpets, and showers may be infected and this is another area where you are reinfecting each other
