Dry Skin: Severely dry skin or even a fungal infection called tinea pedis can cause peeling even in the presence of a steroid cream. See your local podiatrist for an evaluation, as a steroid cream may not be the drug of choice given your condition.

Dermatitis/fungus: Various skin conditions including fungus, allegic reaction to material in shoe or sock( contact dermatitis), eczema or manefestation of another condition could be the cause. Did the dermatologist do any diagnostic testing such as a biopsy. What type of cream was prescribed? If the medication is not for the correct condition, it won't work. Sometimes oral medication or other therapy may be needed.
