exfoliating after surgery
After a surgical splint for two weeks and right at a week in an aircast my skin is super dry from the knee down. After showering the skin, especially on the bottom of my feet, seems to come off really bad. I'm assuming this is probably normal since it can't slough off like it would with normal walking but I'm wondering if there is an easier way to speed up the process. Tonight I washed it with a poofy body wash sponge, then rubbed dead skin off with a washcloth and coated it in lotion but it seems to happen every time i take a shower and doesn't seem to be an end in sight.
any advice from those of you who have dealt with this before?
