Hello,
Rash associated with peeling can be seen in drug allergies, viral fevers, contact dermatitis etc.The peeling can be due to contact dermatitis to any allergen like creams,cosmetics,dust,clothes etc. Wash the area with a mild cleanser with moisturizing properties like Cetaphil. Keep it dry. You may try applying a good moisturizer over the area and see if this improves. If the symptoms still persist then you can apply mild steroid like dermacort.

For exact diagnosis and management n please get it evaluated from a dermatologist. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
