Skin spliting under toes.

I have been having issues with the skin under my little toes cracking. They heal up, then split again. It is kind of painful to run on.



I thought it might be athletes foot related so I sprayed it with tenactin. It burned like an SOB, but didn't seem to help. I have tried rubbing lotion on these spots with a little bit of success. Any other ideas?

RE: Skin spliting under toes.

I don't know anything about it but I would be tempted to keep it clean and use a cream to soften it up. My brother used to have serious dry and splitting skin on his hands and Corn Huskers Heavy Duty Oil-Free Hand Treatment Lotion worked well for him - the only thing that did. My wife likes Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Ointment.

Good luck - looks like it would be painful.

RE: Skin spliting under toes.

Iused to get that on my hands when I worked and they got so dry from washing them 200 times a 12 hour shift. The lotion Leon suggested works as does Aquaphor~ slather it on and wear socks to bed. I woudl do it and wear gloves. It's weird and annoying sleeping with gloves (and socks for that matter) but it worked.

RE: Skin spliting under toes.

Thanks guys. I bougth some of the Corn Huskers Lotion and will try that. I doubt I will wear the socks at night. But I can use the lotion under my socks that I wear during a good chunk of the day.

And when she is done he says, "It puts the f#%&*ing lotion in the bucket!" Or how about when he calls for the dog, "Precious....."

One of my all time favorite movies! Silence of the Lambs.

When I got my tattoo and had to keep it lotioned up, I would always say "It rubs the lotion on it's skin..." Helen didn't like that so much... LOL
