Horror Heels
i have the most humiliating heels ever, I've been living with them all my life, I love winter only for one reason, i dont have to show my heels. Any other times is just tragic. They look like they are scarred after being burnt or seriously injured. I've tried pharmacist, doctors, bio oil, aloe vera, the works.. nothing happens, it's so embarrasing especially when people comment about them whether with me or behind my back, don't know which's worse!! Please suggest something, anything!!! Really deperate........

All I can glean from your question is that you heels are in a poor state, poor enough to clearly have an impact on your life style. I advise you to yake the bull by the horns and get yourself off to a podiatrist where you can be treated, educated advised and if necessary chastised into looking after your feet. Please call the South African Podiatry assn 0861 100 249.

To the person who posted this question and to any one who reads this Q &A this clearly shows the psycho-social impact feet, and foot care play on us as individuals, and as a society

I hope this helps
