Hi Farrah, I have a question in regards to diabetic foot care--I'm having a very difficult time keeping my feet from becoming dry and cracked. I was diagnosed with Type II diabetes in 1995 (my mother had the disease) and I'm 29 years old. I don't clip my toenails because I largely listened in part to my podatrist stating that it's dangerous to do that. Lately, I've worn diabetic socks on my feet instead of regular ones but when I wake up in the morning my feet are very dry and flaky. My question is this: is there a cream specifically designed for people with diabetes? I don't use regular lotion since it's not recommended but do you have any tips in regards to keeping my feet clean and healthy? Thank you for listening and I appreciate any help that you can suggest to me!!

Hi ! While I am unable to provide any medical advice as I am not a medical professional there is a lotion that we actually carry at our company that is for people with diabetes. You can always go to our website to check it out. I hope this helps!!
