I have very dry feet. My feet used to crack from being so dry. I have tried tons of different lotions, but nothing seemed to help. I found a foot creme by Burt's Bees and my feet are so soft now. It is the only thing that has worked for me. I apply a little to my feet every night. I no longer have dry, cracked feet

Hi Msann, Thanks for the Invite to be a Friend.
I hope the lotion Your using is cheap. I buy mne at the dollar store and it works very good. I think my changing from always wearing shoes and socks at home has helped also.
Did you know that dry feet can be an indicater of poor blood circulation in your lower body?
A blood thinner is the only help for that. Even an aspirin a day will do a lot of thinning.
Blood thinner's worse side effect (in My opinion) is that the bumps and scrapes we experience every day cause red splotches.
Another side effect is the amount of bleeding from the kitchen knives we handle. Slight little nips are no problem but the deeper cuts will bleed more than we were expecting.
When I get those, I usually use tissue to help. Works fot me.
Have a Great Day and Spread Smiles and silly Giggles to everyone.

Nope never heard of it but may just check it out! I have a terrible time with my feet, same with my fiance's feet. Especially during the summer it tends to be worse of course. Thanks for the heads up on it though! Sheila

My Dr. told me that most of diabetic foot problems are not just "dry" skin but are actually a fungus. She said it is common but almost impossible to get rid of, and that spending a little time each day getting rid of the dry skin takes some of the fungus with it. She said not to spend tons of money on expensive creams, once you find a OTC cream that seems to work to stick with it.
