    OTC Feldine P gel helps as a spot treatment. It is only a painkiller. Voltarol gel is ibuprofen so anti-inflammatory painkiller. Co-codamol is also OTC in three strengths. Boots sell codeine with ibuprofen. Anything with codeine can be addictive though. These things might not work but if he can go to the doctor and say he is taking OTC stuff daily and needs something stronger to be effective pain relief they might take him more seriously. There are lots of prescription painkillers to try he does not have to tolerate the pain for the rest of his life.

    I had a really bad case of athletes foot which lasted months, I then got infected big toes, which got treated with antibiotics, and then the pompholyx started, when I lost all the skin through blistering on both my feet. For a month I could hardly walk, so I had a month off work.
    Its a bit of trial and error with treatment and I think whatever the consultant tells you, you have to find out what works for you. If you google there are a lot of people that have it. I just made a mental list of the ones that people had tried and worked then my way through the ones that had a basis in science.

    I had panty liners in flip flops to absorbed the ooze, and then cotton dressing which changed 3/4 times a day. Popping blisters, using aloe vera gel, basically trying to dry it up and then using the best cream to protect and moisturize. I used very little steroids, I had managed to control it before I got as far as the consultants, I saw one a week after my trip to A&E.
    The good news for me is, so far, it hasn’t come back, in about 18months, but I treat every itch, spot etc no matter how small with aloe vera and a small dab of hydrocortisone 1%.

    I had a similar incident 2 months ago, a tread and I think I broke a metatarsal. It was still weight-bearing, and TBH as long as I didn’t touch it the pain was negligible. If touched it was very ouchy, even the water against it when swimming was unpleasant.

    It seemed to get better, but I too have noticed that lately it is sensitive and has some reddening come back. I am interested as to what they do with yours as my GP is so unapproachable, and I am not sure anything really can be done (I would not have an operation or anything) so I have not investigated further.

    Germoline do a wound glue, I get awful cracks at the side of my thumbs; it sticks them together brilliantly and I then put sterisrips over the top.

    1+ for the sketchers women’s work shoes. I am not a nurse but I wear these shoes all the time around the house and they are extremely comfy, plus they are really roomy so you can put some inserts in if you want even more comfort.

    Just when I thought the Crocs situation couldn’t get any worse! By the way the other day I saw someone wearing them with black fishnet tights… could that be the worst fashion crime of the year, if not decade?!
