hi i had surgery on my ankle to fix the broken and shattered leg bones where they meet in ankle joint, at the accident i also had a dislocated ankle for approx hour to hour and half while waiting for ambulance which was fixed 2 weeks before surgery. My leg will be stuck in a cast for another 3 weeks before going in for a review and progress check but i have large amounts of dead skin on and around my toes, that seems to be getting worse and worse i am a dancer and was getting a little bit of callouses from my new dance shoes which don't breathe well. i was wondering if this is normal and what i can do to fix it without water as im not allowed water near my cast. i cant wait another 3-6 weeks for cast to come off it seems to be spreading. have had lots of swelling up and down since accident. Please help me.

I moistened Q-tips with a little bit of water and used those between and around my toes while in my hard cast. Worked pretty well.
