Coconut oil: Is one 'home remedy' that has been helpful for several of my patients. If it persists, some prescription medication might be needed.

Vaseline: You may try using Vaseline ointment or vegetable shortening (yes, home remedy) at night and wrap your feet with plastic wrap when you go to sleep. Wearing socks would be fine also. If your feet do not improve after a few weeks, then you may need to see your doctor
