    Cracked feet
    A remedy for it is a good scrub.Apply foot masks once a week to restore moisture.During your bath ,scrub heels regularly.A good pumice stone would do.
    Fungal infection
    Use anti fungus powder.Fill a bucket with one fourth of warm water,1/2 cup of coarse salt,and 10 drops of lime juice,or 1/2 cup of orange juice.If you sweat a lot use few drops of tea tree oil.Soak for 15 mts.Wash and apply lotion.
    Home made lotion
    Mix 3 tbsps of rosewater,2 tbsps of lemon juice,and a tsp of pure glycerine.Apply on hands and feet and leave for half an hour to soften dry feet.

    Hi all

    Here comes few tips........

    1. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Don’t ignore pain. Painful feet are not normal. Many foot conditions can be cured if you visit a chiropodist as early as possible.[/FONT]
    2. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Wash your feet daily in luke warm soapy water. Do not soak the feet as this may cause them to become excessively dry[/FONT]
    3. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Dry your feet thoroughly, especially in between the toes.[/FONT]
    4. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Apply moisturizing cream all over the feet, except in between the toes.[/FONT]
    5. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Inspect your feet regularly. Particular attention should be given to changes in color and temperature of your feet. [/FONT]
    6. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]You should contact a chiropodist if your nails become thick, tough and discolored. [/FONT]
    7. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Any growth on your feet such as corns calluses and verrucae's should be monitored.[/FONT]
    8. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Peeling of the skin or excessively dry skin should be treated. Seek advice from a chiropodist.[/FONT]
    9. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]If your feet are itchy, that may be a sign of a fungal infection of the skin. Seek advice from a chiropodist.[/FONT]
    10. [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Remove any hard skin you may have gently with a pumice stone or a skin file. It is not wise to use a pumice or skin file over a joint. If your lesion is over a joint, seek advice from a chiropodist.[/FONT]
    regards
