In brief: Burning peeling skin

Sounds like you may have athletes feet especially if you have nail fungus if it is athletes feet which is a fungus infection of the skin than its usually easy to treat with OTC creams if you can't get it to go away see a podiatrist or a dermatologist.
Sometimes it will cause itching as well. Yes its reversible if its a fungus infection.

In brief: Athlete's foot

It sounds like a bad case of tinea pedis or athletes foot.
Topical antifungal cream and powder should help this along with keeping the foot dry.
