Hi. Has Anyone Had To Deal With The Very Thick, Hard, Cracking And Painful Skin On The Feet, Particularly Around The Heels & Toes?

Hi. Has Anyone Had To Deal With The Very Thick, Hard, Cracking And Painful Skin On The Feet, Particularly Around The Heels & Toes?

I have this very dry, hard, cracking build-up of skin around the rim of my heels & toenails. It's ugly, painful and very difficult to deal with. It even limits how far I can walk. Does anyone have this, and do you have any tips or tricks to help this peel off & get rid of it?

Not on my feet but on my fingers... My derm recently recommended Eucerin roughness relief spot treatment. Moisturizers were not working at all and too greasy. This is NOT a moisturizer, it has urea and cerimide 3. It can burn a little in open areas but has DRAMATICALLY improved my skin and my quality of life.

I have not experienced that but I feel like I'm in the early stages. Bottom of my feet has been extremely itchy and around my toe nails. I know this was posted 8 months ago and was wondering if you found a remedy?

I had very dry, cracked heals with some peeling. Try drying your feet with a hairdryer. Somebody told me about this years ago, I have been doing drying my feet with a hairdryer for years. They told me that I had some type of fungus on my feet. It seems to keep down the dryness around my feet. It works.
