There: There are several conditions that can cause peeling of the skin on your feet. Any process that triggers rapid renewal of the epidermis on your feet will contribute to thickened, peeling skin; in many cases this problem is merely due to an occupation that demands a lot of walking or standing.
Your doctor can readily diagnose a fungal infection by obtaining a skin scraping and examining it under a microscope. If this doesn't reveal the cause of your peeling, he/she can investigate for other potential causes (circulation problems, dyshidrosis, ichthyosis, autoimmune disorders, etc.).
If you haven't seen your doctor about this issue yet, I recommend you do so. ...Read more

86 the pumice: Plantar warts bleed with debridement due to the blood supply that goes to the lesions. These capillaries are what feed the virus. Normal debridement can make them bleed, but usually without ant pain. Pumice stones may be too abrasive causing you pain. Also, the location of the wart will contribute to the pain level (under a bone). OTC medications have limited benefit. See a podiatrist. ...Read more

If a pumice stone is used daily, how long would it take for hair to be removed and would it also remove the black spots associated with shaving?

If a pumice stone is used daily, how long would it take for hair to be removed and would it also remove the black spots associated with shaving?

Hmmm...: A pumice stone scratches off the upper layer of dead skin cells, but use it too often or too vigorously and one will scratch off the upper layer of live skin cells too. That would lead to inflammation (irritation and redness), which in turn could cause splotchy skin with hyperpigmentation (dark spots). Maybe that pumice stone isn't such a good idea. ...Read more

How do I permanently get rid of the callous on my inner feet? I've had them for years and pumiced daily for the past year. Why won't they go away?

How do I permanently get rid of the callous on my inner feet? I've had them for years and pumiced daily for the past year. Why won't they go away?

Assuming your diagnosis of callous is correct, they are caused by friction and usually are under a bony prominence or region of pressure. Hence, if the etiology is removed then the issue may be solved. If I knew precisely the region in question I could give a more exact answer. ...Read more
