Can you tell me what lotions I can use for diabetic feet that will soften my feet and make them feel normal again or creams that can be use also?

Try a pan or big bowl of warm water and Epson Salts - soak for a bit and then scrub (if you have foot scrubber or use a rough wash cloth). Should help quite a bit! God Bless!
I am diabetic too and had the worst dry area on my right foot. People (friends) commented on how awful it looked. About 3 nights a week I would put Vaseline on and cotton socks, but it didn't help. I bought expensive diabetic foot cream. It didn't help. I tried coconut oil. Finally I read a blog that said try Gold Bond Ultimate Cream (about $6.00 a tube at WalMart). It worked! Best thing I have ever tried. In 3 nights of use, my foot was about 50% better. I hope it works for you too.
Good old petroleum jelly works for me. It is cheap and easy to use. I put it on my feet, wrap in cling wrap and wear old socks over them. In the morning the jelly will be absorbed and your feet a lot softer. Just be careful if you need to get out of bed at night. Your feet will be slippery.
