Can I soak my dry feet?

My feet are extremely dry and cracked and I got some Epsom salts and listening to soak them in. It really works but I have read that D’s should not soak feet. My feet never sweat which is probably why they are dry.

    The BBC eat location I have found to help w/dry skin is Gold Bond for diabetics. It rocks

    Hi @kamat2, you are correct that soaking is not recommended for those with diabetes as it can make them more prone to infection. Have you spoken to your doctor or a podiatrist about possible options to help with your dryness?
