    Well I have to say I have quite a problem. The bottom of both of my feet look HORIBLE! I am a 36 year old woman. Both of them arebad I have what looks like fish gills on the left side of both feet going down the foot, like 3 or 4 they look like little slices or what my daughter calls gills. They do not hurt they do not bleed but ewww. Also my heels are very thick dry and cracked. Now I haven't gone for a pedicure in quite sometime actually a couple years can that be why? Well the slices however have been there for quite sometime they used to come and go now its just ben there for awhile now. I am "overeweight" not HUGE but I know being oveweight can possible be a contributing factor but I just want to know what I should or could do to fix my problem. Your advice will be much appreciated and I thank you in advance.

    Among other potential problems, you might have psoriasis or ichthyosis or a condition where the dead outer layer of the skin does not slough off properly or one in which there is excessive regeneration of skin cells, you might, because of possibly wearing flip-flops in combination with excessive weight and maybe excessive sweating or employing excessive soaks have dry skin ridges on the sides of the feet, you might have some severe hyperkeratotic condition, you might have diffuse wart-like growths or you might have something that I haven't gotten around to naming. But without seeing your feet, examining them, taking a good history and asking you questions, I really cannot come to any conclusions on which I might base a treatment recommendation. As this and forums such as this are not appropriate venues for obtaining diagnoses, my advice would therefore be that you see a podiatrist or a dermatologist.
