Welcome to e health forum.

peeling of the skin or desquammation can occur due to various causes including dryness, atopic dermatitis, malnutrition (vitamin deficiency), bacterial infections (Scalded skin syndrome), and other causes.

Hence it would be recommended to consult with a dermatologist and seek a proper opinion and specific treatment.
