I appreciate everyone's responses so far to this thread, but I didn't want anyone to get upset.
My job requires I am on my feet 8 hours a night on a concrete floor, and have developed callouses.
The brand names of good shoes are appreciated.
At the same time, money is short and I am interested in anything I can do myself to help cure or
deal with my foot problems. You may think that my feet are worth any amount of money, but I have a
daughter in college and a severely autistic son. One example of cost is my son's dentist bill. Recently he
had some cavities. In order to do the work on him, the dentist has to do her work on my son under
anesthesia, at the local hospital. The total bill for 4 cavities has been over $3000.
So Copperhedzkettle, I am gratefully for all the advice you have given. I did soak my feet and use the razor,
which gave my feet some good temporary relief.
I am also putting money aside, each paycheck, to buy a pair of good shoes, which has been recommended here.
I am still interested in any other advice, but really don't want to, and smile when you read this, don't want
to cause a stink between my roodfood friends over my feet.
