Shedding skin is usually a natural process. It's often unnoticed, but you may notice it when you are bathing or showering and perhaps scrub your skin a little so that the dead skin cells fall off. This is normal and nothing to worry about.

There are many skin conditions that can lead to skin flaking and peeling off. Dry skin may result in white flakes of skin falling off, which is usually treated with a moisturiser. Eczema is often red, and itchy but can also cause skin to break off, and this is usually treated with a corticosteroid and a moisturiser. Sunburn and general irritation of the skin may also result in peeling.

If you are concerned about your skin, you may want to talk to a pharmacist or doctor about your symptoms so that you can get the right treatment for you
