[IP] Topical food creme for diabetics



I have been always dealing with heel cracks and itchy feet. This last 
summer, we happened to go to a beach bash-it was a concert across a lake. We 
came in on a pontoon boat to watch the festivities, band playing, 
socializing. We spent a few hours or so in the water that was thigh deep. By 
the time we got back to the cottage we were at via the pontoon boat, the 
skin on my heels were white...time passed and I got home and took the foot 
brush and pumice stone to them and they have been good ever since.
I really think warm water soaking is good for the feet plus sloughing off 
the extra skin helps, then following up with Bag Balm or petroluim jelly. I 
do like Eucherin creme the best, it is easier on the socks! Sharon

 We use bag balm all the time on the cow's udders and rub the extra into the
skin of our hands.... works great, dumb me never thought to use it on my 
feet.
thx for the tip!
