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 use Avon foot works the max strength cracked heel cream..the best way I have found is to use it immediately after shower when you still have moisture on your feet it kinda locks it in...good luck🤗

My skin problems stated as an LPN working in a hospital. I was allergic to latex gloves and the antibacterial soap the hospital used. My skin was sore everyday I worked. It has permanently sensitized all my skin to bug bites with extreme itching, redness, and welt like spots at bug bite site. The itching is so intense I have to get oral steroids to quell itching. I really got no support from my manager. This was before Spina Bifida patients started showing up with severe allergies from latex. I was taken off the floor for awhile so skin could heal and I could have patch skin testing.
