HELP! I've noticed my 18 month daughters toes are peeling. She eats pretty good including her veggies and fruits. What could it be and how do I stop them from peeling???? Any advice???
my son had a strange rash where he had white tiny bumps all over his body and the doctor said it was a viral rash. his skin was really hot all the time for like a week and a half and then it finally went away. this thing made him extremely irritable and emotional and tired. its been about a week since he had that and now his hands started to peel on the palms and thumbs. now his toes are starting to peel. i'm wondering if this skin peeling is related to the viral rash. they checked him for strep at the doctor when i brought him in for the rash but it came back negative. i guess i'll wait and see what happens. anyone else had this?
Don't worry. Scarlet fever is caused by the strep bacteria, and after a strep infection people sometimes get peeling of the skin of the palms. It lasts a while while the skin grows a new layer, and everything is fine, as I'm sure it will be with your daughter too. This takes place a few weeks after the infection, and does not mean that the infection is still there, so no antibiotics are needed, or any other treatment, for that matter. By all means check with the doctor, if you're concerned.
