Rough dry skin.....

last month

On the back and sides of my feet and the back of my lower legs I now have rough dry skin. Apparently this can happen with diabetes. A few months back around the time of my diagnosis I was so ill that I did not care, but I'm getting my ducks in a row and am ready to take care of the skin issue now. I've been putting lotion and foot cream on but the roughness is still there. I never really had this problem, I've always just kept my feet/legs scrubbed and clean, no special care, and my skin was never this bad. I've always used a natural bristle bath brush but am careful now, as those with diabetes should be with foot care.

Those of you who have had rough skin, did anything in particular help?
