I have tried pomace stone, razor, everything to remove the dead skin that was caused by hard shoes but every time new skin comes cracked and hard. I have tried foot creams also but nothing helped. I can send u image of my foot if you want it. Can u please help me out. Thanks.

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    In cases where there is hard skin and fissures you want to think more prescription strength emollients such as Urea 40% or 12% Lactic Acid. You can get either of these from your Podiatrist or Dermatologist. I’d suggest using them overnight in occlusion which means you will apply, saran wrap your foot, then go to sleep.

    Changing weather and depending on what shoes you wear can contribute to the hard skin on the heels.

    I hope this helps.
