2 yo little ones feet are peeling... Any ideas why?

There has been no blistering, no burn, no injury, nothing.
They don't look sore either...

What is this?

Iv tried ringing the doctors but a doctor isn't available to talk to me

Watching with interest as my two dc 4yo and 18mo have the same!

Haven't walked on anything hot.

Haven't been swimming for weeks

Athlete's foot?

Are you making sure his feet are dried properly after his bath? If not, the skin does tend to peel, especially in this warm(er) weather

Sometimes feet and hands can peel after a Staphylococcus infection.

Also after Hand foot and mouth, but presumably you'd have noticed if he'd had that

My guys seem to be allergic to crocs. Their feet peel when they wear them!

Strep infections can cause this, DD had peeling hands and feet coming off in sheets like greaseproof paper after a severe strep infection.

Well that's me answered aggressive bunting, they had that a fortnight ago.

My DS's feet peeled after hand foot and mouth

No hand foot and mouth....

isn't it something they can have very mildly/ only have some symptoms?

New shoes?

I have vague memories of not being able to wear a certain brand of shoes growing up because they made my feet peel badly.
