Hi
Just wondered if there's anyone out there that have feet like mine? My toes on the bottom seem to peeling, and catching on our carpet..is there any creams out there that may help? I don't always wear socks on my feet so not sure if its cause of that? Help!

Eulactol Heel Balm is amazing! I get it from Priceline. Slather it on, chuck on some socks and you're good to go. original.gif

I would recommend a pedicure from a quality therapist of a visit to a Podiatrist to get it started.  After that, eulactol heel balm and socks to bed every night.

Are you barefoot all the time? What type of floors do you have?
I find tile floors a lot worse than hardwood.

You may have to wear socks for awhile or slippers to give your feet a rest.

Are you sure that you don't have a fungal infection seeing they are peeling

Get your GP to check them.

I tried Heel Balm but it didn't do anything. In the past it has worked well but not this time. Turns out I have Dermatitis on my feet. We tried one cream on a script which cost a fair bit for a tiny little tube that didn't last long and it almost worked and did get better. But if I stop using it it gets worse again.

My GP gave me something extra strong and hopefully it will work this time. Its so strong that he wants me to only use it every 3 days at first and build up to every 2nd day if I think it needs it. (only used it once so far) TMI and gross but apparently it will make them crack even more and then a layer of skin will peel off. Yuck!
