The outer edge of your foot is a common place to get corns. Your pinky toe area is also very susceptible.
This is because the entire area is flexible and is exposed to a ton of pressure when you walk.
In this corn removal, I take out a corn a few cm's under the pinkie toe. It was nice and dry and popped out easily.
It wasn't hugely painful at this stage but would have been in a few weeks.
This foot corn was probably just on the edge of home treatment. You'd have to be dedicated, however.
You'd need some Gehwol Fusskraft and a good file!
Scholl Cracked Heel Balm Review (It's Too Watery!)
Good 'ol Dr. Scholl's canary blue boxes grace many supermarket foot care shelves.
After the risible performance of the Scholl Velvet Smooth foot file, I decided to try this.
So, this Scholl's Cracked Heel Balm review:
To be fair, you're meant to apply this every day for weeks.
(Not a 10-minute "one and done" with a foot file and scalpel)
That said, here's my impressions:
Now, cracks in your heel are technically known as fissures. They're caused when dry skin and friction collide.
Your heel skin is preordained to get thick. It needs a cream with higher-than-normal Urea content to really work in.
(Gehwol Fusskraft Blue is infinitely better)
Anyway, the Takeaway...
Would I use Scholl Cracked Heel Balm on my patients? No.
To be fair, you're meant to apply this every day for weeks. (Definitely not a 10-minute one and done with a foot file)
Would I use it if it was the only thing left on the shelf and I was going to a BBQ with the town mayor with 20 mins to spare?
