Painful crusty/cracked skin

I’ve had cracked skin for the past two weeks and I peeled it off or use scissors, but that made it bleed a little and it hurts to walk. I only have this for one leg.

    Hello and thank you for your question. I would highly recommend not cutting the skin off in the future as cutting yourself is always a risk. If you cut yourself you then run the risk of an infection. In the future I would reccomend using topical urea cream or lactic acid cream which will break down the thick, dry skin. Follow the daily cream with weekly debridement using a pumice stone. I hope this helps!
