Every time I run I get peely dry skin on my feet and it's a right jeff. If I leave it alone it dries out and get's itchy. If I cut it or pick it off, it invariably hurts a day after when I try and walk or run it. So, solutions anyone?

Slosh a load of surgical spirit on your feet, morning and evening. Have to admit, sounds to me as though there's something up with your feet- maybe think about seeing someone a bit more medically qualified than us if it doesn't clear up?

Vaseline heats up with the friction, so not a very good lubricant.

My drunken efforts at dry bumming passed out girls at parties has not adequately equiped me for further discussion in this matter. The floor is yours..................

Sounds like your feet have a problem. Would not suggest surgical spirit until you know what's up; it could lead to cracked skin. Is it all over the foot or around the edges of the sole?

See a doctor who is qualified to give advice on such matters.

Oh and Man Up!

Mostly occurs on the balls and heels of the foot, though has been known to extend into the arches and toes as well! I've had peely skin on the feet forever, but it's not been this frequent, and it's pretty irritating as pretty much as soon as it grows back it peels again. Eeek.

Do you wear trainers all day or generally exist in a student ming-haze of poor foot hygiene? Would suggest you wash/bin you insoles and see a doc either way.

Then man the fukc up! :D

As if I can afford that! I'll get some Vas on it tonight and wash my trainers and slippers. Hopefully that'll work!

Your feet may drop off and result in you bleeding to death until you die from it.

Sounds like you have a bacteria problem. Tried and tested method which doesnt involve medicines etc is tea. Soak your feet in tea a couple of times a day and after a week no problem. Apparently the tannin in tea destroys the nasty little barstewards.

Regularly remove dead skin either with a pumex stone or if its thicker use a bladed scraper readily available from places like Boots. Try and use pure wool socks if you can. Never ever pick off dead skin with your fingers. Hope it helps.
