I have never had very soft feet, but lately my heals are looking really dry and cracked. Probably has something to do with the fact that I have a 1 yo to look after, so I don't spend as much time on home pedicures as I used to. I do always make sure to use soap on my feet in the shower, but the cracks actually look like they have dirt in them! Gross!
My DH has always thought I had persistent athlete's foot that I am just not aware of and blames me whenever his feet itch. He treats for athlete's foot, I don't. Of course we use the same shower. My dad has horrible feet. They are dry, cracking, itchy, and smelly. Help! I don't want that (DH says I already do, just not to the same degree)!
Is that what I have, or is it something else? How do you treat for it and get it out of the shower at the same time so it doesn't keep going around?
One of my problems with treating for it is that I ALWAYS wear open-toed shoes. DH can put powder in his shoes, but I just can't do that. I wear dressy sandals to work, and the rest of the time I'm in flip-flops. (I'm in FL in case you were wondering.) Any tried-and-true solutions are very much appreciated!
