Re: really bad cracking heels

my dermatologist recommends a product called AmLactin lotion which contains lactic acid for extreme dry areas including the heel and feet areas. It is over the counter. I bought mine from Walgreens in California.

I use a PedEgg (or anything similar) once a week on my heels, coat my feet with lotion at night, and sleep in thick socks. Within a few days, my feet are baby soft.

Have you tried Bag Balm ? Bag Balm applied to feet, top and bottom of feet then put on white cotton socks before bedtime. Good for daytime too.
