While at work today one of my co-workers mentioned that he was having pain from calluses on his feet. I mentioned that I use a Dremel tool
occasionally (TMI?) to sand down excess and sometimes painful skin build up. BTW, I use it gently and occasionally dipping my feet in water as a
Dremel operates at high speed and can burn you through the friction it generates.
Another co-worker who is in school to obtain his RN mentioned that this was a good way to get a staph infection.
That got me to thinking, "How would I get that from using the tool?", and when I returned home looked up other ways to take care of my feet as I am
on them almost every waking minute…even now.
I'm kind of hyper and pace a lot.
Using the Dremel and taking my time with it has worked wonders for me, but I think that there has to be a better way. The calluses keep returning and
like the doofus I am when my feet don't hurt, I don't take care of them and have to return to the ritual grinding.
I do moisturize my feet daily, but they always return.
And now that my manly-man ego has taken a hit for admitting I moisturize,
, can anybody offer me some advice on this matter.
