My sister has a friend,,....yadda, yadda...sent me a tube of Gehwol Salve For Cracked Skin. I've been having the devil of a time and had run out of things to try. This stuff keeps my feet hydrated ALL DAY, doesn't sting, applies easily, and is all around wonderful. It has a Vicks Vaporub smell when you first apply it (which gives you a warm, soothing feel) but it dissipates quickly. It is not available in the US (my sisters friend gets it when she visits Canada). It is manufactured in Germany and is available on line. Give it a shot. I've even started using it on me hands.
