Men are so unsensitive sometimes! But, it doesn't matter if you are male or female. If you're feet are in socks and shoes all day (especially tennis shoes) they will get sweaty and will get dry and itchy. I am prone to athletes foot (and belive me, I'm not an athlete!
The best thing I found to help with the dry skin my feet is something I picked up at the dollar store. It's lemon and eucoliptis (sp?). Put it on at night and put socks on, and the next day, the dry skin just comes right off in the shower. And, it only costs a dollar!!
Now, if it's getting to the point where it is itching and cracking then you need a medicated cream.
Still, it's better than my old boyfriend that told me I had "Hobbit" feet! My feet are basically flat, and my second toe is longer than my big toe, plus if I don't shave my big toe, I have a very big tuff of hair that grows, plus I wear a size 8 1/2. So, being told you have "guy" is better than being told you have "guy" feet!
At least "guy" is still considered human! Most of the time, anyway...
