Peeling Skin on FingersPeeling skin around the fingertips is a very common problem. The outer layer of the skin, epidermis, peels off roughly every 28 days, as part of a natural cycle and is replaced by a new layer. However, sometimes the rate at which skin cells are lost exceeds the rate at which new skin cells are regenerated. This problem commonly affects the fingers, as they experience a very great degree of pressure and friction in the course of our everyday activities. This makes the peeling of the skin painful around this region.
Mostly, nutritional deficiencies in the diet are responsible for this peeling skin condition. Lack of hydration, sunburn, exposure to harsh chemicals, excessive perspiration and changes in the external environment may also cause peeling skin on hands and fingers. Less frequently, peeling skin on fingers may be caused by more serious ailments like Kawasaki disease, exfoliative dermatitis, psoriasis and the Peeling Skin Syndrome.
