Q. I have dry cracked heels. What can I do to make them nice and smooth again?

A. There are expensive foot creams on the market, but we like affordable products like Bag Balm and Udderly Smooth Foot Cream (an underwriter of our radio show). Vicks VapoRub is another option. Readers have told us: “I had cracked feet but after a week of using Vicks VapoRub my skin is without any cracks.”
Another offered, “For years I have suffered with painful cracks in my fingertips, despite putting cream and white gloves on my hands before bed. I tried using Vicks instead of cream at night and the difference has been amazing.”

Readers who would like to know more about unusual applications for Vicks may wish to order our Guide to Unique Uses for Vicks.

I recently had a problem with my heels cracking and discovered this helped me cure the problem. First I exfoliated my heel with a pedi-pad and than I rubbed bag balm into my heels as much as would absorb, wiping off the excess and than sprayed the area with liquid bandage after two days I cleaned and repeated the process, within two weeks my heels were just as soft and smooth as a child’s.
