I had the same problem for years. I tried everything, I even went to a dermatologist who told me I had a type of excma (sp), and had me try Eucerin (sp again). I tried that for years with no results. Finally, I was in need of lotion and could only find a mini size of Gold Bond (I was staying w/friends while baby was in the hospital). I used this for about a week, and my feet are completely healed! I had never tried this before as it didn't look like anything special. I used the healing cream, and still am, my feet look great for summer, and they were cracked bad enough that they would bleed between my toes, it hurt to wear most shoes. Hope this helps I know how awful this can be!
