Naand dokter
My ma het al ' n geruime tyd ' n soolvrat wat maar net nie wil opklaar nie. Die plaaslike dokter het sowat 3 jaar terug die soolvrat gesny, maar sy moet gereeld teruggaan om die voet weer te " skil" . Die probleem kon maar net weer terug. Die voet pyn elke dag.
Is daar moontlik raad wat u vir haar kan gee? Kan so iets ooit opgeklaar word?
Baie dankie

Dear Tilly

Its possible that the lesion on your mom's foot is not a wart but a corn which is caused by foot shape, pressure friction etc. It is possible that the doctor removed the wart which has left an area of scar tissue that will form a painful callus over it.

These lesions will need regular treating to remove the hard, dead skin layers. It is possible to remove these dead layers regularly with a pumice stone or similar and regular application of a good moisturiser will also help.
