Many conditions: The peeling may be related to dry skin or a sign of a systemic problem. Monitor her temperature, watch for red eyes, rash, swelling and report these findings right away to your pediatrician. Fungal skin infections usually present at this age with a rash. Apply local baby eczema cream several times daily, avoid immersion in water and fragranced products. If the peeling spreads, please see the ED.
