Raw, itchy feet?
My husband's feet are constantly itching everyday, to the point that he scratches until they are raw. He has been to the Dr, but his remedies don't seem to help. We've tried everything from Athlete's Foot Spray to lotions and even Vicks!

Arm & Hammer Baking Soda. Add baking soda into a bit of water. Make it into a past and rub it on the affected area and between your toes. Let it sit for five minutes, then rinse, clean and dry. Repeat this process daily until your foot condition is gone.
Clorox. Make a solution of one-half up of Clorox bleach and a gallon of water. Then, soak your feet in it for fifteen minutes twice a day until your athlete's foot disappears. According to people who swear by this remedy, the chlorine bleach kills the fungi related to this condition.
ConAir Pro Style 1600 Hairdryer. One reason why you may be getting athlete's foot is due to excess moisture in between your toes. So, before putting on your socks and shoes in the morning, make sure your feet are completely dry by holding a hair dryer a few inches from your toes.
Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Soap. Soap up your feet with this product, dry them and then apply a dash of the soap as lotion to your feet. Make this part of your daily routine in order to eliminate athlete's foot.
Heinz White Vinegar. For ten minutes, soak your feet in this product. You should do this up to four times daily for several weeks. The vinegar is acidic and will kill the bacteria and fungi on your feet, thus, eradicating your problem.
Kingsford 's Corn Starch. Sprinkle this cornstarch onto your feet and into your shoes to absorb moisture and reduce friction.
Listerine. This remedy is only for users who aren't afraid of a little pain. If you wash your foot with Listerine it acts like an antiseptic killing your foot fungus. However, it will sting and burn in the process. So beware.
Morton Salt. Dissolve eight teaspoons of salt into one quart of warm water. Afterwards, soak your feet in it for five to ten minutes daily until your problem disappears. The salt will attack the fungi on your feet.
Preparation-H. Coat your feet with a fine layer of this product in order to sooth itchy toes.

You could try getting some tea tree oil and putting that in tepid water and soaking. Tea tree oil has antibacterial properties, and is also soothing. I've heard neem oil is good for this also, and helps control foot odor. I believe you can get this at a natural foods type store also, and neither should be very expensive.

Typically, skin conditions such as eczema have to do with poor dieting. Learn here https://tr.im/mRHHN
Eczema food triggers such as eggs, fish, peanuts, and soy are known to help reduce flare-ups, but this can vary from person to person. These foods may also exacerbate eczema because many people cannot properly digest the proteins, which causes an allergic reaction.
