Brief Answer:
Probably a fungal infection, kindly more details are needed.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

There are many medical conditions related to your symptoms.

A photo of the peeling skin would be very helpful through the diagnosis.

More details that I may need to help me through the diagnosis are:

Do you have itchiness at the feet?
It can be a fungal infection.

Do you eat healthy?
It can also be a vitamin deficiency?

Do you have any other medical condition?
It can be a peripheral neuropathy, which is commonly related to other diagnosis such as diabetes.

Do you take any medications?

I will be waiting for your response to be able to help you better.

Meanwhile, I recommend to use an over the counter lotion to reduce the peeling.

You may also use steroid lotion.

For the pain you can use anti inflammatory medication such as Acetominophen 500 mg three tablets a day.

I recommend to keep a good hygiene and eat a healthy diet.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
