Icky Icky Feet (don't read if feet bother you)

My feet are 'genetically' bad....thanks to my father I believe. Anyways I have HORRIBLY AWFUL dry skin to the point that my feet crack and bleed on a REGULAR basis, and we're not just talking about little cracks we're talking GRAND CANYON type cracks! My latest is between my big toe and my 2nd toe on my right foot. They are horribly painful and make it unbearable almost to walk. I've tried just about everything I can think of. I've been to a podiatrist (about 3 years ago) whom proceeded to screw up my pinky toe nail to the point that all it does is grow huge calluses on it. I've tried prescription strength Urea cream, just about every foot lotion, potion, scrub & soak known to man :). Right now I am using Village Naturals Foot Essentials in hopes that it may help. I'm sorry if this is a 'touche' topic, I just need to vent! LOL!

My dear sweet hubby (bless his heart) periodically takes my feet and 'shaves' some of the dead skin off and when I get bad cracks will 'dig' them out so they can start healing. He's such a trooper.

Hi Heather,

I'm sure I'm a lot older than you but we have a lot of things in common. I have not been diagnosed with Pcos but I think I have it. I am using meds that they suggest for Pcos and they are working for me..We are about the same size.. my highest was 230 and I'm down to 214. I too have the icky feet!! I always figured it's from going barefoot all the time..Two things have helped me (when I use them) Flexitol heel balm and PedEgg. Love them both. Hope this helps..
Martha :)
