  • Does it itch? If so try Tinactin,, if not try a scrub for feet, and good lotion.

  • if it does not itch.... then I woud honestly do this... get an old pair of socks, AT BED TIME : use vasoline on your feet over night. dont walk around with it on there, by morning you should be seeing a difference. Also they do make " certain thin socks" for this. like at walmart or a drug store. or you could use a foot cream for cracked and dried feet the same way. put enough on to soak into the skin though , vasoline too. good luck
    Atheletes foot would be itchy and red, burn also

  • Do NOT use Vaseline or Aquafor or other OTC creams... they are petrochemicals and dangerous. Should not even be used on healthy skin.

    Wash feet, soak in vinegar for 10-20 minutes, wash again, and use something natural like 100% coconut oil or shea butter.

  • Use olive oil,, Vaseline does not penetrate the skin, but the sock thing with apricot or olive oil should work,, would she set still for a pedicure? My DS loves them, and they can exfoiliate the dry skin,, try the scrub, then use the oil and socks at night,,
