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.”
