In brief: Urea cream
Regular hand/foot lotion is sometimes not adequate.
Using a 40% urea cream 1-2 times a day usually works very well. See your foot specialist or dermatologist to discuss. Dr l.

In brief: Lotion
Use a pumice stone to smooth out the rough edges.
Then use lotion on the dry skin. When using at night time cover with socks.

In brief: Several things
!. Use a pumice stone to smooth down the skin 2.
Use a good lotion such as foot miracle cream 3. If the crack is deep apply some second skin to the area to protect it.
