corns between toes
« on: 16:45:23, 04/09/20 »
Hope this OK to post here, moving on from the subject of socks yesterday, I have now found a sore patch on the inside of little toe, looks like it has been pressing into the next toe along too, I initially thought my socks were the problem but now wondering if this could be one of those soft corns..but not sure, but it's sore..anyone had anything similar? I do intend to get it checked out but waiting time is quite long and I want to walk  :'(

Can you wrap a Compeed round it?  There are a sovereign remedy for sore spots.

A long wait to see a chiropodist?  I got in to see one within 7 days.  Sorted out my (many) tootsie ailments in about 30 mins!  Also gave me advice on the causes and how to prevent/reduce re-occurrence.  Though I did book the appointment direct with a "proper" chiropodist/podiatrist, ie. not a referral through a doctor or one of those fancy nail painting beauty salon types.
Is the search over if you find nothing?

Hi Mel, they have reduced patient bookingnumbers, so a few weeks as I'm on holiday next week

Ahh, right.


Most of my "sore spots" were simply "soft" hard skin.  Maybe try using a pumice stone as a temporary fix if you think it is a corn/hard skin.


If it's between your toes it could be the beginnings of athletes foot so maybe massage some athletes foot cream in after you've done your DIY tootsie pamper.
