For about a month now the bottoms of my feet have been peeling. Not a big deal, not enough to hurt -- about like the peel of a mild sunburn but I can't figure out WHY? Doesn't match with any foot fungus or anything --

So I thought I'd ask if anyone has anything at all similar that might be associated with lupus? It's just rather odd...

Hi Lynn,
    My feet peel and sometimes crack. The summer is the worst as I work in a dishroom with all of the humidity
as well as the heat. I use Nivea Co Q-10 (wrinkle cream) on them.  Unfortunately, Wal-Mart no longer carries it
and I haven't found  anywhere else to get it from. I also use it on my hands in the winter as they dry out from
the chemicals in the machine and then I go outside to my car for my breaks. If you can find it give it a shot,
it cost around $10.

hi lynnwood,

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!

love joan

Hi Lynn, I've had mild peeling like that on my finger tips but never my feet.  Maybe it's a mineral deficiency or something?  I'm not sure. Hope it clears up on its own!

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?

If you cant get your hands on the nivea, Gold Bond is excellent on the feet. My heels crack and peel much more in the summer. I get pedicure once a week, use my pedi egg, put cocoa butter or vaseline on my feet at night and then sleep with socks on. Sounds crazy, give it a week you will notice a big difference.

It's not an issue worth the time & effort of treating, I just wondered if anyone else had anything similar. Not cracking or hard dry skin, just a like sunburn like peeling right on the bottoms. Very odd, thinks I!

Yes, I actually have had it for about a year now. It isnt severe on me, no cracking or anything. I find that baby oil after my shower helps with this really good. Just dont be an idiot like me and put the baby oil on your feet in the shower (after the water is off) or you will end up ice skating in the bath tub and if like me, land up on your bum...!

Oh, no! Falling is the last thing I need right now! Hope you didn't get hurt.

I have a pulled groin & strained hip flexors so can't hardly stand or walk anyhow. PT for wks before it gets better, they told me yesterday.

At least I'm not the only one with this odd (but very minor) affliction!
