How To Treat Cracked Heels

0 Comment

Treating cracked heels. I have not tried this and cannot vouch for it but if it really works, great. If nothing else, you will have nice smelling feet.

Put shaving cream on your feet. In a bucket or sink, combine equal parts warm water and Listerine. Soak a small hand towel in the solution of water and Listerine. While the shaving cream is still on your feet wrap the wet hand towel around your feet and let it sit for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, use the towel to rub your feet. Some of the calloused and discolored skin will rub off. Apply a healthy amount of lotion to your feet. After your foot bath, is it a good idea to spend at least 5 minutes drying your feet. You want to make sure you do not put your socks and shoes on with your feet still wet or damp (this can cause bacteria growth and infection). Use a towel to pat your feet dry and be sure to get in between the toes.

Also, give your feet a break from sandals (don’t wear them every day) and apply lotion to your heels nightly to reduce cracking

Treating sore or smelly feet:

Soak your feet in 1 gallon of warm water and 1 cap-full of bleach. This takes the soreness out of your feet and kills bacteria that cause the smelly feet. You can only use this method three times a week.

In general, please pay attention to your feet. It is very easy to get a foot infection due to the fact that they get little air, they sweat, and they are in limited space in a shoe to move.
