That's a good idea. Out of sight, out of mind.

Ever since I been using that callus shaver on my heals, the dry skin comes back even worse in like 4 days. But I can't stop using it cause they are so dry and flakey. People say that putting a really thick moisturizer with cotton socks while u sleep help, I just want instant results though. Not much of a patient person. :roll:

yes - head to soles

I have gone at a dry area of my sole with a scissors until I get to thin skin and then it bleeds and I am disgusted and sore and injured :x

I also pick at my face......... :cry:

I find regular delux pedicures help me not to pick my feet so often... 8-)

Also some nights I smother my feet with vaseline and put socks on (and cling film for a great cure) and it softens the skin a lot so I am less inclined to go after my feet when the 'tough/rough bits' are softened 8-)

Feet picking definately tends to be late at night so I guess advice not to get too tired (as in the 12 step) is something to note. Like all compulsions - if I am rested and healthy I am less like to engage in stress behaviour like picking....

I am the one with a bad picking problem and it is just on my face, but my husband picks at his feet in a kind of mild way. When he does it I can't stand it. Even the sound, like if he files a callus or uses scissors or nail clippers... is as bad as nails on a chalkboard. It's like torture to me even though he never hurts himself the way I do when I pick. I always want to say STOP! Please stop! but I don't say anything because I feel like its the pot calling the kettle black and I don't want to lead into a discussion of my own picking.

I used to pick at my heals until there were deep, bloody spots that would hurt like a mo-fo for days. And, unfortunately, I have what I refer to as "hillbilly feet" - Thick, dry skin that sometimes cracks. I've been much better about it in recent years (don't know why). I still have hillbilly feet, but I usually get the pumice stone out after showering if they are really bad or if they are itching me. Ouch, I can remember how painful it could be, and then to have to walk on it.......

Eugh, i use to pick at my feet till they bled. It was so painful walking. I don't know how it started, I guess one day I decided it'd be a good idea to pull some skin off the bottom of my feet?
I've just kinda drifted away from it lately, I don't do it anymore. I've got thick horrible skin on my feet because of it though.
