My friend daughter is suffering with her feet she is suffering with peeling skin, no blisters just the skin starts to peel off.

Picture she showed me it’s different parts of her foot.

Affects both but not necessarily at the same time.

Doctor has said it’s because she runs but she has proper running socks, trainers, she does athletics and xc.

Thought I’d ask you knowledgeable lot. Thanks in advance.

Is she a teen by any chance? If so then juvenile plantar dermatitis springs to mind

Could just be the accumulated hard skin coming off - I have this right now, as I'm nursing a torn calf and haven't run for a week.

Has she reduced mileage, or as Lip Gloss said, got her feet wet for a prolonged period recently?

Passed the article on to my friend she said this sounds very like her symptoms. Thanks again HellaBells.
