Is it a fungal infection?

sounds horrid- my mum has it too and unfortunatly I think it's just dead skin.

Althletes foot?

A fungal infection?

Does it have small red spots on it?

Deffo leprosy. Got to be.

On the other hand, ifyou've tried moisturisers and it's not working then poss a funny fungally virus thing I'd guess. A friend of mine had something similar I think. Got cream for ti from the Drs.

that isn't that gross!

As they aren't itchy, have you tried moisturiser on them?

Looks fungus-y to me....but it could be contact excema/dermatitus or an allergy

I often get feet like this & one or other goes a it odd looking

that does look like a fungus infection, you can get a cream off the shelves called cannesten makes sure you get the one for feet though. Basically thrush cream for the foot, and you need to keep your feet out in the air, and not in socks and trainers as heat and warmth only cause more problems
