Certainly looks like scaly-leg mite to me. Wash the feet in warm soapy
water, lift off any loose scales, dry, and then smother in vaseline or
petroleum jelly. You can add a little teatree  or eucalyptus oil to the
jelly, or simply use chest rub, but the latter is not advisable in hot
weather as it can burn.
