Few days: Peeling around fingers and toes is expected after kawasaki. Usually lasts for few days. Try moisturizers.

Not biggest worry: Did she get ivig? Did the fever break? Is she on aspirin? The peeling skin will typically subside in a couple days. It's not a major concern. Did she get an echocardiogram? Was it normal? That piece is the most important because that is the key complication of kawasaki disease.
