Skin Peeling on Fingers

On occasion my skin will peel on my fingers close to my nail bed.  It curls up and I clip with a nail clipper close to the skin. It is not painful unless the peeling skin snags on something.  Cutting the skin stops the peeling.  What causes the peeling?

Hello,

How are you? Peeling skin on the hands or fingers is usually a temporary and harmless problem. It can be due to excessive perspiration, fungal skin infections, dry skin, and from certain medications.Moisturizing may help. If it persists, have this checked by your doctor for proper management.

Take care and do keep us posted.
