    I grew up with my mother having a potted Aloe Vera cactus plant sitting on a window sill in her kitchen. We called it a burn plant because when someone got burned, a broken cactus leaf got rubbed on the burn. It was also used on cracked feet and such after a leaf was split open and then boiled to make a lotion. I have kept up the tradition all my life and still raise and use Aloe Vera cactus plants for skin care. The only thing that the Aloe Vera lacks is antifungal properties, so for that I use Baza Antigungal by Coloplast.

      Chalk up another vote for Eucerin. It can be a thinck gooey mess, but it works very well.

        I've worked outside (Buffalo NY, now)on broken water mains for many a year in the wet and the mud. That combo drys and cracks your hands (face too) badly. I'll use anything in a pinch, but Eucerin works about the best so far. I'd try Sarge's Working Man Hands if I can find it. For chapped lips good old (and cheap) Chapstick does it every time for me, but just plain, nothing fruity.

          PAShooter, thank God it isn't diabetes.

          You and my wife think alike, she also suggested that I use Vaseline instead of her skin creams.
          It worked like a charm and my feet are looking and feeling better.

          Thank you everyone, for the great suggestions.

            Gary,
            O'Keeffe's also makes one called "Working Feet" and it is also a great product. You may want to give it a try.

              Oh, and just for the record, I'm not one of "you senior guys"! I just play one on the Internet.

                  One side of this argument has tons of evidence, while the other side has none.
