Hello,
Peeling and flaking feet can be due to contact dermatitis and contact with harsh detergents, soaps and lotions. Sometimes cold, dry air and wearing socks for a long time causing increased sweating can cause  peeling and dermatitis or fungal infections can also cause peeling.
Wash the areas several times with fresh water. Do not use any cosmetic products at the sites. You can apply some calamine lotion at the rash as it will help in soothing the skin. For mild-moderate symptoms a weak steroid may be used, whilst more severe cases require a higher-potency steroid.
Symptoms can be exacerbated by dryness of the skin. Use good quality moisturizers to prevent moisture loss from the skin. If still the symptoms do not improve then please get a clinical examination done by a dermatologist and then get fungal infections ruled out.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
