What kind of lotion is best for dry feet? The doctor recommended one but it has acid in it and really burns. Thanks:)

CeeBee, I have alot of dry feet problems also, I actually ordered the PedEgg from the TV commercials. I love it, my wife ended up getting her own after she saw the results I had. Along with it I us a lotion called Hemps. It is a brand name with lots of different scents, I use aloe because it is not perfumed and does not burn. It is a little expensive and only available at salons, but it seems to keep the skin moist longer than others I've tried. It has a picture of a pot leaf on the front, but I have never got a buzz from it, lol. Try the ped egg, I think you will love it, it was only like $10.00 plus shipping.  Google it and you can buy it online.  Good luck.

I've had really good results with Aquaphor by Eucerin. I feels like vaseline but it isn't. It has lanolin in it which is readily absorbed. I put it on at night and sleep with socks. My feet had gotten so dry that the skin on my soles was peeling off in sheets. This stuff really took care of that.

One of my favorites that I have loved for over 40 years is Alpha Keri. We used it in the nursing home on the dry skin of the elderly, it's soft, thick and really does the job. My husband uses the Hemp ointment that Woody describes. His knuckles used to crack and bleed in the winter and don't since the kids got him the hemp oil ointment. Great stuff!
