My feet need help!!

I recently moved from Chicago to Nevada. I don't know if this is the reason my problem began, which is why I put it out there.

I've noticed that since I moved here, my feet have gotten really chapped, cracked and super dry! I apply lotion every single day, like four times a day- and the problem persists. It's gotten so bad that it hurts so badly sometimes. It kinda feels like I have a million tiny little cuts on the bottoms of my feet.

Does anyone know how I can help my problem?

  • You may want to see a foot doctor and have them tell you what is going on. My feet get like that in the winter and I use foot lotion it's called "hard feet" you can get it at wal-mart/target.

  • Yikes! I'm sorry to hear that one.
    Usually what I do is slather them up with Aquaphor - it works WONDERS, and just put on some socks and go to sleep.
    If they get particularly bad, I do it for a few nights - and I also soak them so they get nice and soft and very gently (using a pumice stone) get the excess dead skin off.
    The climate change might've had something to do with your feet acting up.
    Good luck!

  • Yeah...what she said...E oil is the best~! I bite one open and use it for lip balm...or an all over night moisturizer..also use it on cuts and calluses...women need to take oils internally as well you take Omega Oils? Vitamin E? Flax or Evening Primrose? That could help as well...not just your feet but a myriad of other things...

  • ...if you want a less sticky option, virgin olive oil is a great moisturizer and has E in it...
