Question: Toe peeling


 zeb1114 - Fri Aug 26, 2005 4:11 pm

My 4 year old has had excessive toe peeling since she was and infant. She takes a multi vitamin everyday and eats well. What do you think is causing this?

It could be caused by a fungal infection, or just from skin dampening in that area.
You could consult with a dermatologist to have a proper look.
