  • Dr Scholl's has some good lotion or go to a podiatrist (foot dr) and get some of their cream.

  • Avon has a line of foot care products. I have the same problem you do. I use a foot file to remove the dead skin, then use Avon's Foot Works Intensive Callus Cream. In just a few days I've noticed a huge difference!

  • Have you tried a pumice stone, a foot file that has sandpaper on one side and a smoother on the other, or other dead skin scrubbing products?
    If the Pedi-Egg, or a similar product, did not work for you, then I would suggest that you visit a podiatrist before you try anything else. Sometimes, a build-up of skin that cannot be scrubbed off at home may be a result of bacterial build up similar to athlete's foot.
    In the meantime, you can purchase any specialized foot cream to apply twice a day to help soften the skin after you do a foot soak.
    Look in the foot special care aisle for the variety of products sold for soaks and lotions. You can get store brand products and save some money - they work just as well.
    I have feet problems, too.
    Best wishes!

  • I use a pumice stone and foot file followed by a nice thick cream....I personally love the Shea Butter cream from Avon, but I think any really good thick cream would do. I follow it up with socks to wear through the night and my feet are very smooth by morning.

  • I agree with the PP though....check with a podiatrist and/or your regular doctor. If you have diabetes, you should be especially careful with your foot care.
