Maybe: Lamasil creme is an antifungal creme which will help reduce the peeling caused by tinea pedis but you would need a urea or lactinol type product for dry skin.

Put cream on dry feet and covered with plastic. Now have light patches of black "mold" on soles of feet. How to clear it?

Put cream on dry feet and covered with plastic. Now have light patches of black "mold" on soles of feet. How to clear it?

A simple test.: A microscopic analysis is the only sure way of confirming the black "mold" theory. It could just as easily be a chemical reaction between the ingredients in the cream, plastic and skin, especially under the specific circumstances. Stop the cream therapy and keep the feet clean. The "staining" of the skin may take some time to clear. Be cautious, further treatment could harm the skin even more.

What do you recommend I use on dry soles of my feet? What creams can help?

Lots of options: Dermatologists recommend Cetaphil, its thick, not perfumed. Alternatively you can use corn buskers lotion, available on amazon. My personal favourite is coconut oil with a little essential oil of your choice. Apply after washing or bathing for best results. If no change after a week, see a dermatologist.

Athlete's foot: Go to the pharmacy and ask for an anti- fungal cream for athlete's foot that contains either Clotrimazole or terbutaline in the ingredients. This should clear up the problem in a couple of days. If it doesn't then you need to see a doctor for an oral anti- fungal. If areas are cracking, red, swollen, and painful, then you have developed a secondary infection and will also need antibiotics.

Extremely dry cheeks, hands and feet. Tried everything creams wise. Was on Accutane 4+ years ago and to this day the dryness didn't subside. Help!

Ceramides: Dry skin now is not related to previous accutane. Best remedy is to rub in a small amount of cream twice a day. This is most effective if used immediatly after in water (shower). Newest and best so far for dry skin is a cream containing ceramides. There are several. A new one is eucerin eczema care cream. Avoid caustic soaps (ph over 7) dove soap is popular for this.

Why are my feet so ugly and dry cracked heels I maintaine my feet all the time and moisturise them with eura cream as soon as I stop soaking it's back?

Why are my feet so ugly and dry cracked heels I maintaine my feet all the time and moisturise them with eura cream as soon as I stop soaking it's back?

Flip flops: Wearing flip flops or sandals with open backs is usually the problem. Also walking barefoot on hard surfaces can worsen the issue. Always wear shoes and sandals with closed backs or straps to keep them in place while walking. Using creams such as urea 40% cream and vaseline nightly with cotton socks can help improve the dryness and cracking. See a dermatologist if not improving.

I have very dry and cracked feet. Tried lotions and creams. Patches of skin are coming off making it painful to walk. Any suggestions?

I have very dry and cracked feet. Tried lotions and creams. Patches of skin are coming off making it painful to walk. Any suggestions?

Lotion often: This is very common. Callusing is a build up of dead skin. As the skin dries out, it shrinks. The tension on the skin, as it shrinks, causes the skin to split. This can split into live skin causing pain and at times, bleeding. Using a foot cream with urea can be quite helpful. The higher the urea content, the better. We use 40-50% urea in a cream. If not severe, use a good lotion daily. Dr l.

I have a dry foot that caused a large incision, the doctor gave me a medicine called fucicort cream but its not helpfull. What can I use?

How dry I am.: Try to follow me here. A dry foot will crack and often does as the tissue dries out. To apply anything other than an ointment could be just adding fuel to the fire. If there is an associated infection, it must be treated at the same time. You might benefit from a consultation from a dermatologist of podiatric physician.

Can athletes foot cream get rid of scaly dry patch on penis?

Can athletes foot cream get rid of scaly dry patch on penis?

Not likely fungus: Fungus or ringworm is unusual on the penis. I would try 1% Hydrocortisone cream. Having said that, the anti-fungal cream might help simply because of the cream base, not necessarily the medication in it.

You state you: Have a rash, and you state you put athletes foot creams on it. Maybe, they don't get better because a rash is not a fungus. Usually, a rash is an inflammatory condition of the skin. You might want to try an over the counter cortisone cream. If no improvement see the dermatologist.
