i never had problems with my feet until lupus, so i guess maybe it could be connected. For me, i bought a foot spa, one of the cheaper not so high tech ones, and i just add the warm water, or hot, watever i can bear at the moment and some epsoms salt. The spa i have has a warmer, it doesnt heat the water but keeps it warm for a while, like 20-30 min, and i soak my feet, sometimes rolling my feet over the little rollers in the bottom, and having it on the "jet" mode, the bubble feel good. Its very relaxing, and after ive been putting on nivea foot cream, it comes in a little purple jar, i get it at walmart.
hope this helps some, and i hope u r feeling well. Thanks for the great job and all the uplifting support u provide here, its great!
My feet do peel in the summer. I had decided it was from wearing sandals all the time, the soles of my feet coming in contact with the leather/suede/pleather - whatever - surface. I don't seem to have the problem in the winter with socks on all the time. I also do have a little foot fungus that flares from time to time and itches like crazy and then goes completely away. My DH also has had monstrous foot fungus and the soles of his feet used to peel like crazy. He's been on Lamisil twice and now it seems to be located only in a couple toenails.
I hadn't really thought about Lupus/AI problems being the source - or an aggravation - but anything is possible - it's all clear as mud, eh?
Systemic Lupus , lupus nephritis , and a lot of other stuff associated with Lupus!
The Old Normal is no more so I and we have to find a New Normal...
