On my left foot, which has little nerve feeling Ive noticed some thick skin buildup lately.  Today it felt kind of cold so I looked and it is wet with blood.  The skin cracked and is bleeding.  Not sure what to do.  I dont want to cut the hard skin or use the pumice because I cant feel it very well and may do too much?  I do put lotion on it every night.  

Ideas anyone?

    try coating your feet in Vaseline and wearing cotton socks at bedtime.  I do that, but with my hands.  They get so dry they crack and bleed.

    Soak for a while in the tub with warm water and Epsom salt, drain water and rub a mixture of sugar in the raw (my choice of sugar bc it's large granules) and olive oil, rub it in for a good while, rinse, apply thick layer of Cocoa Butter Vaseline and wear socks :)
