Hardened skin on side of big toe

Ok, just recently, I realized that the skin on the side of my toe has begun to harden and turn white (it looks really dry). It is also noticable on my heels, and the bottome of my feet in some places. I have no idea what this is but I saw a commercial for a product called Kerasil (Spelling?) and I'm wondering if anyone has tried it, or knows of any thing else I can try. Thanks

Sound like calluses. I have them in the same places.

The post "new foot creme" a few days ago is also about Kerasel. It works for us.

You probably have callus...a good pumice stone & softening creme should help. Also, check to see if your shoes are fitting properly since that's mostly likely where you're developing the callus' from.
