Here are potential causes
-- Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Peeling skin can occur due to sunburn, dry skin or a host of health conditions.

The Mayo Clinic explains these possible causes:

  • Having an allergic reaction to things such as latex, detergent or food.
  • Developing a bacterial infection, such as a staph; or fungal infection, such as ringworm, athlete's foot or jock itch.
  • Having an immune system disorder, such as toxic shock syndrome.
  • Having some types of cancer, such as non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.
