Scaly. Is this due to my neuropathy and should I see my neurologists about it. Any responses would be appreciated.
I have neuropathy in my legs and feet. I also have the dry, scaly, sometimes cracking feet. I don't know if it's from the neuropathy or not. I use Gold bond lotion several times a day on my feet and it helps alot. About once a week I use a pumice stone to remove the dead skin. About once a month, I coat my feet with Vaseline and put socks on before bed. It's a pain in the keyster to have to do all of this, but these things have helped me. Best wishes.
It also is present with thyroid disease. Walking more does keep the feet healthy and may reduce the NP. Our feet sweat when we walk and don't if we are mostly sitting. So it is all about hydration. I am a barefoot girl winter and summer. However, since my illnesses I find the feet very dry and tight. Goldbond is what I use. I also have some areas with mechanics hands on the feet. These easily crack and must be watched. Desitin works well if using thick socks and slippers. Daily is the key. Very common. Just keep at it.
