  • I’ve seen people in the Third World who don’t own even sandals with feet like this. But this don’t seem the case. I’m thinking this is a medical condition. Maybe diabetes. I have diabetes in it’s final stages. My feet have never been like this. But over a year ago I developed diabetic celluitis on my feet and legs. Even with bathing. The condition led to a m**ZIT**ive infection and I ended up in the emergency room and ICU. No camera with me sadly. M**ZIT**ive IV antibiotics and treatment with Unna boots…medically treated bandage. You can get them on Amazon. After, to keep my skin healthy I started to use Bag Balm. It has done wonders on my dry skin on my legs. Given that at one point they thought I might lose a leg I love the stuff. Old product developed in Vermont by dairymen to treat their cows’ udders in harsh winter conditions. You can buy it in 5 gallon buckets in feed stores or order in small cans from Amazon. I’m treated by 3 doctors for various health conditions and they are all amazed at the stuff. Many doctors won’t mention it for fear of seeming old fashioned.

    • I am so sorry for your diabetes. My leg clotted off entirely (a m**ZIT**ive DVT) and due to this I have post-phlebetic syndrome with similar statis rashes, copper colored discoloration along the shin and ulcerations in the lower leg. Unna boots should not be applied by anyone other than a health care professional, a wound doc or nurse as the tension of and placement of the bandage, any additional medication and duration of application really should be left to a licensed/experienced/trained professional. I am qualified in wound care nursing and was a home care nurse for years and have even treated stasis rashes/leg ulcers as ordered by the patient’s doc, but I leave up whether I need Unna boots or placing them up to the hospital’s wound clinic. If I am getting any signs of a stasis rash or an ulcer begins to form I am there – and I am perfectly able to wrap my own legs and predict what is to be done… but it’s just that, predict. I’m compromised and I don’t want any advance of my peripheral vascular disease beyond what will happen due to the advance of time. I can happily report I have not been in Unna boots more than once a year or so since I began treatment with pneumatic leg compression boots (which I am in an hour 2-3 x a day). I have also had to be fully compliant with 30-40 mg/Hg hip-to-toe compression hose when out of bed.

    • This guy (MrFeetStuff) was actually struck by lightning and this is one of the unfortunate side effects/conditions he has been dealing with, crazy right?!?! At least he survived though.

  • I’ve had this before to a lesser degree. I wasn’t able to walk wearing shoes enough for the dead skin on the bottom of my feet to slough off. New skin kept growing pushing up more dead skin. The dry skin got thick, it started to crack where my foot flexed.
    I had perfectly healthy skin and feet. I could have easily just grabbed an edge of one of the scales and pulled it off, but the living skin was so fragile, that pulling off the scale could tear off living skin.
    Once the dead skin was softened by soaking, it would dissolve when wiped with a cloth, but I needed to do it in stages so the living skin could toughen up over time.
    Since the toes here are pretty much free of scales (skin that is very mobile) and the mid-sole and heel are caked up, but crackled, I think this is an elder with a situation similar to mine.

    • I do agree with Bag Balm; I also like Hoofmaker which is easier to find because CVS carries it at least here. The best for me is still Eucerin because it has nothing I’m sensitive to. My favorite for feet is Burt Bee’s Coconut foot creme. As far as when my feet get very dry and even get fissures (this goes back to childhood), a doc told me it can be fungal, so to treat it as such in addition to using a moisturizer. I would never take a blade near my feet!

  • This poor person can’t even dig in and go at it because it bleeds! It just must be so painful and I would imagine very irritating! I have always worn white Cotton socks with tennis shoes my entire life! Thankfully, I was able to do that. My feet are soft with no irritation whatsoever! I do have my fair share of health issues, trust me. I guess I was just one of the fortunate ones. I do count my blessings every day too!

  • Walking must have been painful. I cut my heel this summer while wading in the Shenandoah river and it took a month to heal. During the healing time my heel got rough and thick and I could hardly walk. Once the cut healed enough to where I could touch it, I got out my Dremel and sanded off the dead skin. I’ve been using the Dremel for years to keep off the dead skin, especially in flip flop weather.

  • I’ve watched all of the Mr Feet videos.This poor guy was electrocuted, or hit by lightning, and it came out the soles of his feet. It’s been a while, so I can’t recall which one happened to him. He goes through **ZIT** everyday with his feet. I feel so bad for him…
