I have terrible dry cracks in the heels of both feet. Last night I finally tried something which worked wonders on those cracks. They are barely visible today.

Okay now ladies and men too, don't laugh, here's what I did. I rubbed both feet with Vicks Vapo Rub, wrapped them in saran wrap (or use any plastic) and then put socks on over the plastic to keep it in place. I slept with that on all night. My feet are softer and smoother with barely visible signs of the cracks. I will be doing this the rest of the week because it really looks like the Vapo Rub is helping to heal the cracks. I did wash off the Vicks Vapo Rub in the shower today.

I've read about Vicks Vapo Rub being a great cure-all and now I've seen it firsthand for myself.

Wow - I must try that - although I anticipate some strange looks from my significant other. Come to think of it - I'll try it on him too. Does it make your feet feel nice and warm the way it does your chest when you rub it on. I love vaporub. I think it reminds me of being snuggled up when I was unwell as a child.

Yes Marisa, it does make your feet feel great. I'm amazed at what it has done to nearly erase the dry cracks on my heels. Dried, cracked heels look pretty bad in sandals I think. Now mine are all gone even when I wash off the Vapo Rub.

Not so ago I tried the Kerasal cream which, now that I think about it, was a lot like Vicks in texture and smell (Vaseline and camphor). I'm sure Vicks is less money so I'll be using it from now on.

The difficult part about using it was that after you had rubbed it all over your feet - wrapped your feet in plastic wrap - you risked falling and breaking your neck on the way to the sink to wash the stuff off of your hands.

That plastic wrap was like walking on ice. LOL

Think Honest, if Vicks Vapo Rub wasn't so blo**y expensive here I'd give that a try. But here a small 50g jar (2oz) costs 4.50 = $5.75c!!!! So I don't think I'll bother until #1 son visits - hopefully the first week in September - so he says!

Carole, you don't have to use much of it to get good results.

And yes, good that you mentioned it does make the feet slip easier. I put socks over the plastic wrap.

But again, my heels now look a lot better and feel softer.
