to do that. as i have read that if you have thick skinned on your soles of your foot that you can put petroleum jelly on it and put your socks on overnight. and in the morning it would be baby soft skin. as the soles of my feet at the back are flaky and it is so dry and hard. but hopefully tonight i would not forget to do that . but i do wonder how it will feel , it is hot to the feeling specially to the hot weather here even at night time. so i hope it won't be uncomfortable so i can bear with it throughout the night.

I put a mixture of cold cream and urea ( a dermathologist gave me the Rp) and it has helped a lot. My whole skin was a mess with chemotherapy so I ended visiting a doctor. This vey unexpensive cream has been a lot better than expensive creams. I call it my "bear fat" as it doen´t smell as nice creams do.

When I am suffering from a bad cough I have put Vicks vapor rub on my feet and wear a pair of socks at night. I might have to try your idea though because my feet get rough. Wearing socks during the night is tough for me. I tend to kick them off. I find putting a fan closer to me helps me keep the socks on.

why do you put the vapor rub on the feet if you have bad cough. but if does help then it is good. but for now i am more into softening the dry skin.
