Can I treat my dry feet at home?

Home remedies for dry feet abound. The good news is that most cases of dry feet are caused by external and environmental factors, so topical remedies are often effective. However, it’s always wise to check with your doctor before attempting to treat any skin condition on your own.

Treating dry feetHomemade soaks can be effective. Often these contain some mixture of warm water and lemon juice, along with other ingredients (lemon acid helps dissolve dead skin). We recommend applying an alcohol-free moisturizing oil, lotion, or cream after you take a bath or shower—doing so at this time will help seal in that moisture. You can find an array of helpful products in the Health and Beauty department of any major retail store.

If home methods haven’t been effective, call Family Foot and Ankle Center. You may have an underlying condition causing your excessively dry skin. Give us a call at (513) 728-4800 or (859) 282-1572 today.
