How Can I Treat Extremely Dry Skin On The Tops Of My Toes
Depends on...: ...The cause, as usual. If it's due to the material (or dye) in your shoes, you may need a cortisone cream (and new shoes). In all probability it is not athlete's foot, which occurs in between toes, not on top. If it's just dry skin, other areas of your body should be dry too - so if it's localized to your toe tops, i'd suggest you see a dermatologist and get a diagnosis. ...Read more

I've got extremely dry skin on my toes my cuticals, thick toenails for 3 yrs now & its painful but w/ no ins. I can't go to dr anything OTC to help?
Your description may be a symptom of an underlying condition so I recommend that if this doesn't work, go see a dermatologists who can often perform routine tests in the office.

Tinea pedis: A very common cause of rash on the toes is tinea pedis or ring worm (athlete's foot). Very often the outer part forms a ring thus the term ring worm. Other causes are eczema, contact dermatitis, pitted keratolysis, erythrasma and others. I would recommend an over the counter antifungal. If this fails seek help from a podiatrist or dermatologist. ...Read more

Athlete's foot: Itching and skin flaking on the foot is characteristic of athlete's foot which is caused by fungus. There are various over the counter remedies for the fungus at the pharmacy but often you need prescription medication to get rid of it. The fungus lives in your shoes so you need to treat them as well. See a podiatrist if it doesn't get better with over the counter medication. ...Read more

If you have very dry and scaly skin, your doctor may recommend you use an over-the-counter (nonprescription) cream that contains Lactic Acid or Lactic Acid and urea. Treatments may also include hydrocortisone-containing lotions. ...Read more
