  • PODIATRIST STATES THAT FUNGUS IS THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF PEELING FEET

 

 

 

 

Your feet aren't exactly pleasant to look at, but rough, peeling skin makes them look that much worse. "Peeling feet is definitely common, and there are various reasons why," says Rebecca Pruthi, DPM, a doctor of podiatric medicine and owner of Foot Care of Manhattan. "We're on our feet all the time and the constant pounding and walking can cause cracking and scaling of the skin," she says.

According to Dr. Pruthi, the most common reason patients have peeling feet is a fungal infection like athlete's foot, but they might not always realize it. "A lot of times it just presents itself as peeling skin and patients don't have the itchiness, so they don't know it's a fungal infection," Dr. Pruthi says. So, if your skin starts mysteriously peeling all of a sudden, get it checked out sooner rather than later. Once you have a fungal infection on your skin, it can easily infect your toenail, which Pruthi warns can be very difficult to get rid of.
