Its a petroleum based ointment that has vitamins a and d in it, hence the name. :P That's what I'd recommend too, with the socks for an overnight moisturizer. Once the rough, dry skin is taken care of I use Palmer's Cocoa Butter once or twice a day to KEEP them nice. :D

Soak your feet in warm water with epson salt and clean them well. Have a pair of socks and get them damp (not soaking wet, just damp) and microwave them to get them warm. Then once your feet are soaked and cleaned, you can also do a pedi here, callous remover, pumice stone, pedi egg, then take your now dry feet and rub with vasoline. Then wrap feet in saran wrap and put socks on! Leave on for about an hour, take saran wrap off then put socks back on and sleep in socks with the vasoline. Every night put on the vasoline and socks (not always damp, but it feels good during the day!) and this will work wonders on your cracked heels!

Also, I have found since losing weight, exercising more, and keeping up with my water intake my heels are doing much better!

The power to change, the courage to do, the will and drive to be exceptional lies within me, and by leaving my fears, my doubts, and my excuses behind, I embrace all that lies within me.

Take a day out to soak your feet, then use a foot file and slather some A&D ointment with some socks...the next morning HEAVEN!!!!!! We use A&D ointment at the hospital and girl! I've seen it do wonders.....lol. But if you're having major problems I would see a podiatrist

I have a foot file that I use when my feet get too dry and callused. I try to use that to remove some of the dry skin. Once I do that, I moisturize my skin with a moisturizing foot cream from Avon (my Avon lady loves me). I do this if my feet aren't cracked.. and if I do , they don't usually crack. If I'm slack and they do crack, I use a tcracked heel relief cream from Avon (told you my Avon lady loves me). It works really well but it's not for diabetics.. I've tried other kinds but I always go back to the Avon ones.. I find they just work better.

I have problems in the summer when I spend most of my time in sandals or barefoot. I've found if I keep my water intake up, it isn't quite as bad. I also put on lots of heavy moisturizer at night and put socks on (I got special moisturizer booties from The Body Shoppe, but regular socks work.) Sometimes, though, it can actually be a bacterial or fungal issue. Have you checked with your doctor to see what he/she might recommend?

Howdy -

I dont know if this affects many people, but I have a lot of issues with calluses and dry skin on my feet and it causes me a lot of problems(ie. cracking/splitting/pressure)... I am having a really hard time trying to get rid of these issues and I was wondering if anyone has had any luck with remedies?
