Skin peeling syndrome or familial continuous skin peeling happens on its own, is painless, and can last a lifetime while gradually getting better. Like skin peeling after a severe sunburn, affected people and/or their caretakers might frequently manually remove sheets of skin.
- Applying skin-softening (emollient) ointments to treat peeling skin syndrome, particularly after a bath when the skin is moist, may provide some relief.
- Vaseline or plain petroleum jelly are recommended.
- None of the corticosteroids or systemic retinoids (derivatives of vitamin A) are recommended or effective, and all have the potential to have negative consequences.
- Genetic counseling is advised for affected individuals and their families to explore the possibilities of genetic testing as well as the risk of having children with this condition.
