On the odd moment I think to do it, yes I do.

Not too often, as I don't want to slide all over the place ^-^
LOL! I usually put it on before bed. Otherwise, I put on socks and there is no sliding. Though you have to be careful which kind of moisturiser you use as I have ruined a pair of socks using paw paw. I just can't get the grease out.

Ahhh I see ...

Only very occasionally when I have to buffer off the hard skin.
This one of those Catch-22 situations. As a diabetic, I have to keep my feet dry but not allow them to crack and become a target for infection. I tend to use glycerine and/or coconut oil but never between my toes as per instructions for my diabetes classes. I do this before bed and put socks on. Glycerine is amazing albeit a bit sticky.

Sorry . . "from" my diabetes classes.

Rice, I have to betray my ignorance here and ask: why must you keep your feet dry?
by Vee
It's something to do with diabetic skin being susceptible to infection and ulcers. Even a band aid can damage diabetic skin. Mine is still quite robust but if you get into the habit of doing the right thing . . . you know, an ounce of prevention - especially as diabetes leads to having no feeling in your feet. In my whole class of people I was the only one who dries between my toes after a shower. The educators were very shocked. Diabetics need to educate themselves.
by Rice
Thanks for that Rice. I had no idea.
by Vee
Sometimes I do. Mostly in hot weather when my feet are more visible!
Oh yes. All the time. They tend to dry out quite a bit. Between pedicures, I try to look after them the best I can.
How often do you go for a pedi, Lluxi? Aren't you afraid of infection? I know that's what keep me away from those places.

Ps . . Vee, in my classes, one of the lecturers told us about a man who had a toy car wedged in the back of his foot . . . he could not feel it and it had ulcerated and he was on the verge of gangrene. Scary.

Thank you, Rice. Now please excuse me, I have to barf! ಸ_ಸ

Sorry . . . *holds bag for Vee and places a cool washer on her neck*
by Rice
Thanks Rice, I really needed that.
by Vee
definitely the soles or edge of soles as I hate split skin and am very fussy with how my feet look!
