Dermatologist Dr. Pravin Banodkar's  Response
Welcome to HealthCareMagic
I would be pleased to answer your question

Your daughter seems to be having a condition called Keratolysis Exfoliativa . This is a condition where the skin peels off and sometimes associated with excess sweating from the palms and sometimes soles .
However it would be important to meet a Dermatologist . They will also have to rule out keratoderma , psoriasis or chronic hand eczema .
