Post Feet Skin Peeling

Lately I have noticed that on my feet, the skin has been peeling, and it is starting to get really bad, could this be a sign of athlete's foot or something else? If so, what can I do about it? Thanks!

Funny, I had this same problem years ago. Also, I noticed my feet had a terrible smell at that time also. Anyway, to make a long story short, I feel it was being caused by the shoes I was wearing at that time. Once I got rid of them and started wearing different ones, the problem went away. I feel certain dyes or chemicals used in the processing of the leather can cause problems, especially shoes made in other countrys. Maybe some will say i`m wrong but it sure is funny that after changing shoes my problem went away. I have also heard reports from others claiming certain laundry soaps can cause problems at times.
