My 7mo son has had peeling skin on his toes for about 2 months now. Not red or bothering him, just peeling on all toes. What could cause this?
Frictional.: Athlete's foot infection usually doesn't involve the outside of the little toe. The bottom and the space between the 4th and 5th is typically involved and it usually itches. You have no description of an itch. The redness of both toes is typical of shoe pressure to the sides of the little toe. Increased arteriole flow for red and secondary venous sluggishness for purple. Check your shoes for fit. ...Read more
I have peeling skin in between my two last toes on my foot. Foul odor too. Is this athletes foot?
Husband has sore between pinkie toe and next one, hurts, bleeds some, when I was cleaning it I noticed a small hole right in the crease and peeling skin.

It is important to remove the soft corn as the worse that gets the deep an ulcer can get. I strongly advise against self treatment and would recommend a foot doctor to care for this. Sometimes, if conservative tx fails a surgery is indicated. ...Read more

Different fungi exhibit different patterns and characteristics. As dr. Fowler suggested, try using an over-the-counter anti-fungal like lotrimin, Lamisil or tinactin, (tolnaftate) twice a day. If you don't see any improvement in a few days, see a podiatrist or dermatologist, as it might not be a fungus.
If you do see an improvement, keep using the cream twice a day for 30 days, since fungal spores live for 30 days. If you keep getting athlete's foot, you might want to keep using an anti-fungal cream once a day for life. There is also something called a steri-shoe, which is an ultraviolet light that will sterilize the insides of your shoes in 40 minutes. If you keep getting reinfected, you might want to invest in that. I've attached a link. ...Read more

Foot fungus: You most likely have a fungal infection called Athletes foot or tinea pedis. Get some Lamisil (terbinafine) or Lotrimin cream OTC and use it twice daily. Expose your feet to the air by wearing flip flops or sandals. Soak the feet in white vinegar or Epsom salts daily. If it doesn't improve or you see red streaks going up your leg see a doctor immediately. ...Read more

Also, dry feet and toes carefully, then apply gold bond powder into your socks immediately after bathing or swimming. Good luck. ...Read more
My 3 year old son has a mystery lung problem for over a year now. He has chronic bronchitis and multiple hospitalizations. He waas hospitalized with107 fever andnow peeling skin on his toes and fingers. What could it be?
Agree with both: I agree with both drs. Ferguson and belilovsky. This sounds like a complicated case and more than likely has more than 1 answer. The fevers/skin definitely raises the possibility of kawasakis, ut the other chronic lung problems are best evaluated by your pediatrician and a pulmonologist. Good luck. ...Read more

My husband has very swollen feet with burning, peeling skin he has a history of eczema and they hurt to move. It doesn't itch. Is this a foot fungus?
Not necessarily: If his feet are very swollen this can cause cracks in the skin and cause the skin to blister or peel. This could be due to eczema or just from the swelling. They can be painful due to the skin being broken to move them. Best to have them checked out, he may need a steroid cream, compression, or it could be a fungal infection, but the only way to know would be to have them looked at. ...Read more
Do I have a foot fungus? How can I get rid of dead peeling skin on my feet? I have very dry feet, the skin on the bottom of my feet have been peeling for as long as I can remember, I tried using a pumice stone, soaking them, getting a pedicure, but noth
There are several conditions that can cause peeling of the skin on your feet. Any process that triggers rapid renewal of the epidermis on your feet will contribute to thickened, peeling skin; in many cases this problem is merely due to an occupation that demands a lot of walking or standing.
Your doctor can readily diagnose a fungal infection by obtaining a skin scraping and examining it under a microscope. If this doesn't reveal the cause of your peeling, he/she can investigate for other potential causes (circulation problems, dyshidrosis, ichthyosis, autoimmune disorders, etc.).
If you haven't seen your doctor about this issue yet, I recommend you do so. ...Read more

Looks like spider bite on top of toes, went away and came back within 2 weeks. Painful, skin peeling, blister like with white pus inside?
Maybe: This could be mrsa. It might not be. As long as you've got no fever, there's no penetrating trauma, it's not expanding, and it's not very painful, it is reasonable to see what it does over the next couple of days. Warm epsom salt water soaks, dial soap and water scrubs, and maybe some topical antibiotic ointment would be my home treatment if the above criteria are met. ...Read more
