Athlete's foot?: You may have athlete's foot (tinea pedis). It can be a chronic, recurring condition that gets worse in warm or humid climates. Here's a link to more information, including over-the counter treatments: http://www.Mayoclinic.Com/health/athletes-foot/ds00317. If the description doesn't fit or the over the counter treatments don't work, see your doctor.

Eczema or infection?: Although fungal infection is a consideration, some forms of eczema can cause skin peeling as well, and this form is limited to hands and feet. Keeping feet dry, changing socks often may help. A form of bacterial infection occur as well but usually look like little pits on the bottom of feet not peeling. If it persists go to a dermatologist for further evaluation.

Osteoarthritis: Pain and stiffness in the am upon arising are usually due to osteoarthritic changes to the bones of your feet from trauma or aging. Often the discomfort will lessen with movement, and return to plague you then following morning. I would suggest a podiatric consultation to determine the exact cause, and possible treatments, which might include oral nsaia, topical nsaia, or orthotics.
