My toes are so painful and itchy. The tips are very chapped and cracked. The skin is tight (hurts to bend the toes toward the sole of the foot). My podiatrist recommended O’Keefe’s Foot Cream which I have been using faithfully. I am wondering about a hot wax treatment, like some places have for your hands. Has anyone tried this? Any other suggestions?
bamisk, your toe symptoms (pain, itch, swelling, etc.) may be due to chilblains (perniosis), a condition that can accompany Raynaud’s. One of the things you should NOT do if you do have chilblains is apply a direct heat source, so I’m not sure hot wax treatment would be appropriate. At the very least, I would suggest consulting with your doctor before trying it.
