yesterday my toes was really sore. It looked red  and I thought it was broken or something. but this morning it was huge!. Went to a doctor and there is an infection. Followed on to the Podiatrist and he lanced it :-/

have no idea how that happened but obviously me wearing in closed shoes all the time lately is not helping to air the feet. Cannot wear shoes at all and the sandels I have on I have to have the little toe on the outside of the strap!

I have no idea why.. It may be that I don't  go round on bare feet much as I find it very hard. So I wear shoes and or runners so why feet sweat more, a small crack then becomes vulnerable as in this case.

but boy is it sore.. did not know a toe can expand that much Shocked

Well, maybe not quite the most important part, I'd rather part with a foot than my heart or brain for example, but its sure up there. Smiley

yes. but I can tell you I cannot put my foot in a shoe at the moment it is so painful. When I danced on Thursday night I took pain relief (I did not know at the time there was an infection). and of course you feel unwell and flat so you push yourself even more!

But I will go regularly to the Podiatrist to make sure that they keep the callus ( it had cracked and caused a fissure) under control I don't want another infection.

Soaking it in warm salty water today.

Perhaps a pedicure every two months would be nice.

I soak my feet in the bath at least once every 2 weeks.  When cooked I scrape the calluses to get the softenend, hard skin off and make it the same shape as my foot.  After drying the foot I coat it in moisturiser (a heavy foot one is best) and pop it into a slipper to cook and dry.  Its important to not let the callus get too thick - thats when they crack.  But YMMV, it depends on how good you are at making them!

well i don't do that I only get one callus between the little toe and the next one on my left foot. but will be more vigilant. not having worn sandals this summer (due to bad support).

I never get tinia etc...so i am very surprised by this infection but it has been very painful!

Well, what was the explanation - you should not just get infections, there has to be a cut...

yes the callus/corn had a fissure...and that is where the infection got  in. so now I will try to wear open shoes for awhile to allow it to breath...2nd day of antibiotics and starting to feel normal. Hope it lasts

Something for heels and the consequences of wearing them...

http://www.vancouversun.com/life/fashion-beauty/Have+high+heel+hangover+Here+help/5965902/story.html

exeerpt


Calf Stretch: Put your hands on a wall, place one foot in front of the other and keeping both heels on the ground, bend the front knee until you can feel the stretch in your back calf. Hold 30 seconds. A second calf stretch can be done on stairs; hang one heel off the stair until you can feel the stretch. Hold 30 seconds. Switch.

"A calf stretch is what anyone who wears any shoes should do, because even your general athletic shoe is technically 1½-2 inches (3.8-5 cm) in the heel, so that is a high heel, too," says Bowman. "So calf stretch, calf stretch, calf stretch."

Toe spread: Sit in a chair and rest your feet on an ottoman or low table. Spread your toes so that there is a space between each one. Repeat. (if you can't do this, start with wearing pedicure spacers).

Toe lift: Standing straight, lift your big toes off the ground while keeping all the other toes on the ground. Then lift the other toes one by one.

Tennis ball massage: While seated, roll a tennis ball under your feet to stretch your plantar fascia. If your feet are inflamed or tired, roll your foot over a bottle of water that has been frozen.

Found this when I was googling massage for dancers.  A recommended routine for caring for dancer's tired feet.  Thoughts?
