If you have dry, cracked feet, try this moisturiser
AmLactin is just an over-the-counter lotion, but it’s like a miracle. Dr Sutera recommends putting it on a couple of times a week, and the calluses will just slough off.
Sometimes if a bunion is really bad, a patient will ask me to amputate her second toe
That doesn’t mean podiatrists will do it, though, because it won’t fix the problem. It’s best to get bunions taken care of at a young age. If you wait until they get really bad, they’re much harder to fix warns Dr Reid.
Not all bunions need surgery
A candidate for bunion surgery is someone who has difficulty wearing shoes and foot pain is starting to slow them down physically. Someone who says, for example, “I used to love going for long walks and now I can’t because my feet hurt.” Dr Sutera says that people with mild to moderate bunions often can get relief from wider shoes, massage, stretching, orthotics, and some padding.
