Not only should people with cracked feet clean their feet at night, but everyone should. This helps in preventing cracked feet, as the dust particles are removed due to this cleaning. Before going to bed, moisturize your feet by applying a thick layer of moisturizing cream or lotion on them. Make sure you do not expose your feet to dirt, grime, wind and sunlight. They are the biggest enemies of the feet. Walking barefoot is a strict ‘no no’. A pedicure once a month will make your feet very happy.

A hint of upturned nose peeked from beneath the blonde jumble, pink lips pursed in sleep, slender fingers disappearing beneath her cheek. He wondered what color her eyes were. Hungry gulls cawed overhead, but she didn’t stir. The wake from McKye’s charter jostled the Mir-a-Mar as the day’s fishing tour set out, but that didn’t rouse her either.

Both athlete’s foot and cracked heels can cause secondary bacterial infections such as cellulitis, especially if the fissures are deep enough to cause bleeding. Diabetic patients are at a higher risk for developing a foot ulcer, which can cause bone infection. Left untreated, a diabetic foot ulcer can lead to loss of limb. Contact your physician immediately if your cracked, itchy feet are causing pain or difficulty walking. A study by researchers Carol B. Feldman and Ellen D. Davis clearly tells us why a diabetic with neuropathic complications – otherwise known as diabetic foot – should use diabetic socks.
Winter winds and low humidity are also hard on your hair, and using a rich, deep hair conditioner is important to restore moisture to your hair.

I’ve been diabetic since I was four years old. I first went to my GP about my feet in August 2006 after a new pair of shoes caused blisters on both my little toes. I had the blisters dressed daily for two weeks by my GP practice nurse and also visited A&E because I was so worried about them. In this condition, rashes and broken skin occur in which one can see the underlying tissues. Most of the skin ulcers develop on feet or on lower legs. The cut skin heals naturally but on a diabetic, it might develop into wound called as a foot ulcer.
