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.

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

Do I have a foot fungus? How can I get rid of dead peeling skin on my feet? I have very dry feet, the skin on the bottom of my feet have been peeling for as long as I can remember, I tried using a pumice stone, soaking them, getting a pedicure, but noth

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
