I have a problem in my foot fingers. The skin between them is removing off. If I go to doctor and tell him like in a conversation as below.
Doctor: My foot fingers are itching and the skin between them is removing/ripping off.
Which one is correct?

    "Removing" is wrong because "remove" requires an object. "The workers are removing the furniture," but not "The furniture is removing."

    "Ripping" has the wrong meaning: you mean (presumably) that the skin is coming off your toes in layers, not that it is being torn apart.
