“Having severely macerated feet is not a badge of courage. It’s a sign that you could have made better earlier choices in foot care,” says foot-care guru, John Vonhof, author of ‘Fixing Your Feet’. In his most recent post John addresses foot maceration (causes, stages, treatment and prevention), an incredibly painful condition that results from running/walking on feet that are wet for hours.
“There is no quick fix to maceration. The more severe it is, the longer it takes to return to normal. Maceration can be painful – and yes, feel like one’s feet are burning. The skin is so soft and tender that every step is painful. Many times the skin has folded over on itself or has lifted to form deep creases, which can split open.”
