I have had neuropathy in my feet for about 4 years now...it was HORRIBLE during my last pregnancy and couldn't take neurontin or cymbalta because it wasn't safe for baby....I HAD it one night, sharp hot shooting pinprick pains....I hit the cabinets...I mixed a wee bit of tea tree oil in with some coconut oil and rubbed it on my feet and I promise you it was all but gone within 5 minutes...It worked on more than one occasion...used just the tea tree oil a few times and also mixed it in other oils to cut it so I know THAT was the working ingredient....hope you get relief!

I had a yeast infection on my feet and toenails that would not respond to Lamisil or Lotrimin. They would knock the infection down but if I stopped using them, it would come right back.

My dermatologist suggested soaking my feet in a gallon of water with 2 tablespoons of chlorine bleach added. Do this twice a week and apply FungiCure (available at Walgreen's and other drug stores). The active ingredient is Clotrimazole 1%.

Fungicure is expensive ($18 for 2 oz.) My doctor prescribed OXISTAT 1%, so my insurance will pay for it.

THE best 'dry heel/nail cuticle' moisture I've ever found is Gold Bond Ultimate Healing Skin Therapy Lotion. I use it every night and wow, it's better than other products made just for that.
