From Sachse, Texas, USA:

I just noticed that my daughter's feet are peeling on the bottom. She has type 1 diabetes. Should I be concerned?


It is very unlikely to be a problem at all. Children's feet peel and diabetes has nothing to do with it. Old folks, like me, with circulation issues may have thickened skin on the feet that peels, but not kids.
