Medication: Here are 7 ways to remove or reduce cracked feet

1. Soak your feet:

According to Healthline. Soaking your feet in warm water for 10-15 minutes can help soften the skin and make it easier to remove the dead skin cells that cause cracking.

2. Stay hydrated:

Drinking plenty of water can help keep your skin hydrated and prevent cracking. Aim for at least 8-10 glasses of water per day.

3. Use a foot cream with salicylic acid: Salicylic acid can help soften and exfoliate the skin, making it an effective treatment for cracked feet. Look for a foot cream that contains salicylic acid and apply it to your feet before bed.

4. Use a pumice stone:

After soaking your feet, use a pumice stone to gently exfoliate the dead skin cells from the affected areas. Be careful not to rub too hard, as this can damage the skin.

5. Apply a moisturizer:

After exfoliating, apply a thick moisturizer to your feet to help lock in moisture and prevent further cracking. Look for a moisturizer that contains ingredients like urea or lactic acid, which can help soften and hydrate the skin.

6. Wear comfortable shoes:

Wearing shoes that fit well and provide adequate support can help prevent the development of cracks in the first place. Avoid wearing shoes that are too tight or too loose, and choose shoes made from breathable materials.

7. Visit a podiatrist:

If your cracked feet are severe or do not respond to home treatments, it may be necessary to see a podiatrist for professional treatment. They can help identify the underlying cause of the cracking and provide appropriate treatment.
