In brief: Moisturizers...

Try a moisturizer with urea cream - something in the range of 20 to 40%.

Also consider athletes foot if there is any redness or irritation to the skin. For this condition, keeping the area dry, using a topical antifungal like Lamisil or Lotrimin creme, plus powder if you have to wear socks may help. Look up pics on net to help determine.

In brief: Cracks

This is frequently a sign of chronic athlete's foot .
Moisturizers alone won't help if fungus is involved . Try otc antifungals like lotrimin (clotrimazole) and others .
