Peeling around the fingernail, while a common occurrence, can be embarrassing for some people. The skin around the fingertips is sensitive and must be taken care of routinely to keep the area healthy. Some causes of peeling include dry skin, eczema, allergies, frequent washing of the hands and infection. Since new skin only takes a few days to surface, the problem is temporary and can also be treated quickly and effectively in several ways.
