Post child's feet peeling

Does any one have any information regarding foot peeling on a child's foot? My 4 1/2 yo dtr has some serious peeeling going on on her feet. She says it doesn't hurt/itching and it's not red or moist.
The only things I can think of:
We bought size 12 shoes thinking her feet would grow and they have not yet.
I recently bleached her socks along with ours.

Rubbing vs allergies?

The only thing I can think of is was she sick at all lately? I know If you have hand,foot and mouth that can casue the feet to peel after it is over. I hope you figure it out soon. and not everyone gets the spots everywhere with it.

It might be the weather. Sometimes my feet (and my little brother's who's 9) peel. It's happened for a few years now ever since we moved to AZ. I wouldn't worry too much about it. But if it's excessive (like in the same spot over and over) then you should probably see a doctor.

Re: child's feet peeling

My daughter's feet peeled when she was a baby. Doctor told me to make sure she wore 100% cotton socks and to change them when they felt damp. Wash her feet with antibacterial soap and dry completely, sprinkle with corn starch and to use eucerin lotion on them.

Hope it helps!
