Itchy fingers: Itchy peeling fingers could be eczema, a fungal infection, a reaction to infection, like strep or a medication. Some people's fingers peel in certain seasons. Try moisturizing with a fragrance-free cream. If that doesn't help, please see your dermatologist for a more definitive diagnosis and treatment.
