Xerosis

xerosis

If you’ve typically had normal skin on your feet and have been noticing them becoming increasingly dry. You’re likely dealing with a case of xerosis. The condition medically known as xerosis is also better known as severe dry skin on the feet. 

There are several factors that can cause xerosis such as: 

  • Bathing or showering habitually more than once a day
  • Using non-moisturizing soaps
  • Not applying lotion to re-moisturize the area
  • Using excessively hot water when showering or bathing

By applying a moisture-rich lotion to the area, you should be able to see results fairly quickly. 

However, if the condition persists for more than two weeks, this could indicate the presence of a viral, fungal or bacterial infection. In this case, you should make an appointment for for a consultation.
