Peeling skin on fingers and toes?

My 3 yr old has skin peeling on her fingers (on the insides) and the tops of her toes.. I have no idea what is causing this. Anybody heard of this? It doesn't seem to be bothering her, and no other obvious symptoms.

my dd picked up athletes food/hand at the local pool. Could it be that? We used a herbal cream made up locally to treat it.
I looked at Hand, foot and mouth, and it does not sound like that. Also, wouldn't strep have other symptoms? I don't think it's a fungal thing either. Hmmm..

Boongirl, I am glad to hear that my dd is not the only one!

I had this as a child- wasn't strep or fungal or anything like that. Just had to "wait" for it to go away... no problems. It was a while ago, but I think it was mentioned that a growth spurt can spur it along...
