I got a lesson in what NOT to do the other day.
I have neuropathy in my toes and I am usually not barefooted anymore (very sad to say). Anyway, I was out talking to my lawn guy the other evening and standing on my driveway barefooted…I started to feel uncomfortable, but it was a bit late.
I had not really burned the bottom of my feet, but I certainly made them very upset. I didn't really realize it until I was comfy in my recliner and I noticed how puffy my toes were and how tingly they felt. I took care of them and by the next day, they were feeling better. Did a little vinegar bath and some coconut oil with some lavender to calm them down. Tucked nicely into a pair of socks.
So do be careful out there this summer. If you are on a beach or hanging out by the pool, be aware. If your feet do not tell you it's hot down here…you could be in for a world of hurt.
