Foot skin peeling?

Hey i'm only 16 (still growing possibly) and i've noticed that at the bottom of my feet just below the middle of my foot, i have skin peeling off. Its kinda rough (bottom part) but the upper part is soft with no problems. When i shower, when i wash my feet, it slowly feels off. Is that normal?

Edit: also they are on both of my feet

Re: Foot skin peeling?

It just sounds like dead skin/callous. Women get pedicures where they use a pumice stone or similar thing to get rid of it. You can find such things in the drug store. Just buff the area with it when you shower and it will rub it away.....unless you'd like to get a pedicure!
