How to get rid of itchy (mornings, evenings) little red dots on my feet?On parts with them skin is peeling off.They come at winter, disappear at summ.

To start with...: The best otc medication (in my opinion) is lotrimin (clotrimazole) ultra. Socks should be a synthetic material like those manufactured by thorlo [http://www.Thorlo.Com/]. Dilute vinegar soaks are good as well. Dry the inside of your shoes by placing them up-side down over an air return vent at home overnight. If this doesn't make things better in a couple days, see a podiatrist. ...Read more

My heels/side of my feet are a really really dark color i scrape & peel off the dead skin/callous nothing works it started since i been wearing hills.

Wearing high heels: If wearing shoes, especially womens dress heels barefooted, you can create a lot of friction from motion of feet in shoes. If you wear hosiery it will likely help.

Why is my skin different over various places on my body after having surgery. My face is peeling and rough, my feet have a thick dry toughness to them?

Skin: The skin on the bottom of your feet is the thickest layer of skin on the body. It is possible that after surgery you were unable to bathe as you usually do. This results in a buildup of dead skin on the feet. This could be happening elsewhere also. See your surgeon and dermatologist for concerns. ...Read more

The skin under my second toe is peeling off and bleeding.. I have to use a powder to keep my feet from stinking and I think that is the problem??

Not the powder: Powder does not treat stinking feet. It sounds like you have a moisture/ fungal problem. Stinking feet are primarily caused by excessive sweating and not cleaning and drying them well. The excessive moisture has lead to inter digital maceration with a secondary fungal infection. This can also now lead to a bacterial infection if not treated properly. At this point seek medical treatment ASAP. ...Read more
