Melissa, lately I have been using Moringa oil on my feet and it is keeping them very hydrated. Do you have a good moisturizer? Coconut oil is also very soothing. :)

Susan @godcares

Melissa if you haven't signed up for the cleanse/elimination diet we are doing in January, please message me. In the meantime I might suggest coconut oil with a good pair of cotton socks. Keep them on when you sleep. Aloe vera gel is my go to always, but there are tons of ideas here.

Please let me know more

I have a moisturiser with salicylic acid and shea butter that is not oily but is working a treat. Coconut oil is ok. I also soak my feet in a foot spa with a mix of epson salt and baking soda. Use the coconut oil thereafter and put on socks.

My seem recommennds cerave healing ointment
Helps some. But not enough. Painful to walk sometimes. Wear socks all the time.

Ingrid @ingrid1

The ointment with salicylic acid? We get it at the pharmacy. Speak to your pharmacist. I got my current ointment from Avon - it is very soothing, and not too greasy. The avon label is Footworks.

I use aquaphor lotion and wrap my feet in Saran Wrap. It keeps my feet moist so when I move them they don,t rip open. Also it makes it easy to peel the excess skin growth.

I like Vaseline Cocoa Butter lotion. I slather it on really thick then put a plastic bag over it with a sock to hold it on, then go to sleep. As long as I remember it's on if I have to get up in the middle of the night, my foot is somewhat better in the morning.

my dermatologist was the one that said to cover my feet with the plastic wrap. I have used the vaseline cocoa butter but definitely feel a big difference with the aquaphor. Unfortunately its quite expensive, but how can I put a price on something that works. I was on several prescription creams that helped but gave other terrible side effects. Also did the light treatment, which didn't help. I also have psoriasis on the palms of my hands.

Hi, I just got my first sore on the bottom of my foot. Omg, it hurts to walk. It is thickening I think, (this is all new to me). It cracked open and hurts period whether walking or sitting. I soaked in Epsom salts last night and will again. I have some lotion the Derm gave me last year.
