Footner about £20 in boots- acid socks. Takes a week to work then my gosh does it work, your feet will be re born

what are acid socks? does the footner come with moisturiser as they are really dry?

oops sorry

You put them on for an hour (i think) then wash off excess, after a few days/a week your skin will peel off in a big way, revelaing smooth new crack free skin.don't add moisturiser even if they get even drier initially because it slows down the peeling process.

Flexitol heel balm - smother it over your hooves and pop cotton socks on overnight. Within a few days you will start to see a difference.

Flexitol slathered on every night, cling. Film it in and then socks to keep it on. Scrape any dead skin/ goo off in the morning. Put a layer on after shower
Do every single.day. Will soon heal.

A visit to a chiropodist, regular exfoliation and Flexitol.

Any cream containing urea will help, the higher the concentration, the better.

After a shower cover feet in vaseline and put socks on immediately. I have not had a cracked foot in years! Also putting two thin socks instead of one thick one helps.

I used to get really bad cracked skin on my feet. I used flexitol and found that it was very good except that the problem wouldn't go away.

Around the house I would wear flip flop type sandals all the time, instead of slippers. The skin on my feet was horrible, the cracks went deep, were very painful and looked unsightly.

Now I wear leather trainers with cotton socks all the time now. No more hard skin! smile

wow thanks for all the good advice. I have been out and got some flexitol and will make a concerted effort to keep applying it

Another Flexitol fan. The Boots brand version of it isn't nearly as good - it's quite sticky and difficult to apply.
