Foot Care for Moms

Summer is almost here and as soon as I start wearing the cute sandals and flip flops my feet and especially heels get sooo dry and cracked. It was so bad last year I actually saw the doctor because I thought it was some sort of athlete's foot or something. She told me no, but need to keep moisturized. I have a bunch of creams and lotions, I know there are tons more out there that I haven't tried. I have the pumice and I currently try to put lotion on right after the shower and before bed (with socks if it is cool enough). Anybody have a...

4 Month Old with Athletes Foot?

Hi, my baby daughter sweats like crazy! About a week ago, it was kind of humid, but still cool out and raining off and on. I put a pair of socks on her feet to take her outside and kept them on when we got home. I noticed that her feet were sweating so much that she developed some little bumps on the soles of her feet. They kind of look like they have water inside the bumps. She moves her feet together almost as if she is scratching. Do you think that she may have developed some sort of fungus on the soles of her feet, and if so, what can I...

Has Anyone Heard of a Toddler Getting Athlete's Foot?!

Hello! I love this site and the mothers who make it such a great resource! So here I am two year old daughter appears to have athlete's foot. Her dad has been having problems with it, so I suppose it's common for it to spread, I'm just surprised to see it on my little girl! Her soles have red, scaly patches of dry skin and she says it hurts. I shy away from over-the counter medicines, especially for her. Does anyone have any great, natural home remedies they know of to help ease the symptoms and/or treat the infection? Any advice...

2 Yr Old's Finger "Injury"

Hi Mamas ~ Hubby & I noticed a strange thing with our daughter's fingertips - some appear to have been burned ! Her thumbs, first finger, and middle finger on BOTH hands have, what appear to be, previous burn injuries and are now "peeling". I remember when I was a kid, I played in our swimming pool for HOURS, doing handstands in the shallow end. My fingertips would go beyond "wrinkled" and look like someone took a LAYER off the top! That's what this looks like too, but, since our girl is only 2 yrs old, she's not doing that activity! ...
