    Takes the dead skin right off. All you need is shaving cream and Listerine. Great to know for flip-flop season, awesome for cracked heels in winter. Because of the footwear we use, it is very easy to get cracked heels during the summer months. Some people also develop a dirty, black layer of skin on their feet. I have an easy suggestion to treat these conditions, but first a word of caution: If you have diabetes, you need to be extra careful when it comes to the health of your feet. Consult your doctor for any treatment you want to try. If you do not pay attention to your foot health you run the risk of life and limb. Treating cracked heels and blackened feet Ask Nurse Suzy Do you have a question for Nurse Suzy? Or maybe a topic you'd like her opinion on? Email her at nursesuzyksl@gmail.com. An easy six-step solution: Put shaving cream on your feet. In a bucket or sink, combine equal parts warm water and Listerine. Soak a small hand towel in the solution of water and Listerine. While the shaving cream is still on your feet wrap the wet hand towel around your feet and let it sit for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, use the towel to rub your feet. Some of the calloused and discolored skin will rub off. Apply a healthy amount of lotion to your feet. After your foot bath, is it a good idea to spend at least 5 minutes drying your feet. You want to make sure you do not put your socks and shoes on with your feet still wet or damp (this can cause bacteria growth and infection). Use a towel to pat your feet dry and be sure to get in between the toes. Also, give your feet a break from sandals (don't wear them every day) and apply lotion to your heels nightly to reduce cracking. Related: Mommy Medicine: Getting rid of toenail fungus Fungal infections of the fingernails or toenails are not uncommon, but they can be tough to treat — not to mention expensive. Here are some tips on how to get a handle on your fungal problem and when to see a doctor. You can only use this method once a week or your feet will become very sore. Remember, this technique literally takes off a layer of skin. Treating sore or smelly feet Soak your feet in 1 gallon of warm water and 1 cap-full of bleach. This takes the soreness out of your feet and kills bacteria that cause the smelly feet. You can only use this method three times a week. In general, please pay attention to your feet. It is very easy to get a foot infection due to the fact that they get little air, they sweat, and they are in limited space in a shoe to move.

In the sink or a bowl, combine equal parts of warm water and Listerine (other generic mouthwashes should work just as well). Soak a hand towel in the Listerine and water, and wrap the towel around your feet and leave it for 30 minutes.
