Very dry skin Feet/Finger

My wife has very very dry skin on feet. Due to this, the skin is cracked automatically and it starts bleeding as well some times. The cracks are very painful. It has started for fingers also on the tips of fingers. Consulted few doctors as well but not much use. Amolene, etc creams when applied also doesn't make any difference. She uses an ointment named "Kusumolin" (ayurvedic). This is effective in releaving the pain and stopping the cracks to develop further. This ointment is being used from past 3 years. If she stops using the ointment, then the cracks will develop more as if it was cut by a blade and then small bleeding starts. Please suggest where can get this checked and cured permanently.

Hi . greetings. This may be a feature of palmo plantar psoriasis and would be advisable if you could continue to apply maintenance creams under guidance of a qualified dermatologist - if applying creams alone is giving good relief. Or else other forms of oral medication or photo therapy can be tried. Hope this helps. Further queries/ request for appointment may be sent on follow up chat. Warm regards Dr Govind Suresh Mittal.
