Irritated skin on toes, red bumps, not peeling. Does athlete's foot always peel?

In brief: Athletes foot

Depending on the stage of athlete's foot and moisture content the toes can be irritated and appear red or peel with dry skin.

In brief: Not necessarily

While "peeling" is common with athlete's foot, it can manifest in different ways, including skin irritation, burning and redness.
Please consult your doctor as it can be treated easily and is important to treat to prevent complications, especially in someone with diabetes or peripheral vascular disease.
