it's normal when you have some callusses (sp?) try lotion on your feet and a "ped egg"... they work at getting dead skin off your feet.

Hello,
This peeling of soles of feet can be due to contact dermatitis, sweat dermatitis or fungal infection of the feet. When a foot is hot and sweaty, the sock sticks to the foot. The sock and foot then rub against each other and the inside of the shoe causing peeling of feet.

Wear shoes that fit properly and keep feet as dry as possible. Wearing wet shoes, boots and socks will increase your chance of developing peeling . So change socks regularly.
And use foot powder to help keep your feet dry. If the peeling still persist then please get it evaluated from a dermatologist/podiatrist and get fungal infections and exfoliative keratolysis ruled out.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

I started taking Lanzoprazole (a drug for acid reflux) 6 weeks ago and since then I have had peeling skin on my palms and soles of my feet which I have never had before.  I  looked up the side effects of this medicine.  Peeling skin is listed as a side effect.  Not a common one, however it is still on the list and so mine is definately from the tablets! Hope this helps someone. Check your medication.
