FML - The follow-up

Today, the dry skin on my feet has gotten so bad that my boyfriend uses my feet to itch his legs when we're cuddling. FML

Hey, OP here. I lotion my feet multiple times a day. I also work at a place that requires me to constantly be on my feet. It's not like I don't try to fix it. I've had it for a long time now, I even have my own pedicure instruments and sugar scrub, but it doesn't help get my feet 100% smooth.

Well that sounds a little unpleasant I shan't lie. But on the positive side it doesn't bother your boyfriend and he actively uses it whilst still cuddling with you so it's not all bad right?

He could be one of those guys that breaks up with you over silly stuff like this or not wearing makeup out in public. So in a way, you're lucky! But you could try to invest in some lotion. It's a cheap solution

#12 that's quite true but sadly some people do still think that way in relationships and sometimes the people with them do things they normally wouldn't to appease them. Personally I usually think girls look better with little to no makeup etc but point is if you like wearing makeup (or perhaps having scaley feet) go for it, nobody should get to decide that for you and anyone who cares enough about you and is worth your time should be happy you're happy... Just you know, if you do choose to have scaley snake feet don't expect them to want to touch them.

In a way, I see nothing wrong with someone breaking up with their partner for not taking care of themselves. Not necessarily over one thing like feet, though. I had an ex who didn't take care of himself. Didn't eat his fruits and veggies, didn't brush his teeth, showered once a week.....god he was gross.

#40 well in that sense I agree. But that is a much more severe case than a girl choosing not to wear makeup in public/ shave her legs every day or a guy choosing not to shave his beard etc any of those other much smaller things that some people break up over.

#12 I wasn't saying that lotion would fix a breakup, I meant to say that to OP. It's obvious her boyfriend isn't going to break up with her but still, lotion is always nice either way.

Shower then use pumice stone to scrub away the dead skin. After that use any decent foot cream designed to tackle dry skin. Also, think about changing footwear, this can also lead to manky ass feat.

my feet will become so dry & scaly and can be used as leg scratchers because of extra moisture such as showering and putting socks on soon after, or sweating on my feet a lot. so slathering on lotion and putting socks on might not be the best advice.

what? this isn't a personal hygiene issue. my feet used to get dry depending on the weather. Now they're dry because of my work shoes and getting my feet wet sometimes. Lots of peoples feet look like that FYI.

OP could just have chronic dry skin that got really bad and hard to manage because of the cold. If it was her intimate lady parts then this FML wouldn't be about her feet...

I completely agree with 51. The FML doesn't say how old op is either, unfortunately as women get older they're feet tend to get dryer and it's harder to lock in moisture. My mom has really dry/rough feet. She keeps them clean, puts lotion on, sometimes sleeps with lotion and socks, but nothing but a good pedicure really helps and even then it won't turn out baby smooth. Pedicures also cost a bit and isn't something she can do every 2 weeks. Moral of the story, it isn't a hygienic issue, & even though there are some things that can help, nothing can permanently cure the issue.

I should also note that we live in Canada and our winters are long and harsh. As soon as the cold weather comes on she gets cracks in her heels and fingers that can be extremely painful.
