She's 17. Recently, she was in a school performance where she wore high heeled platform boots for 2 dress rehearsals and 6 performances. She ended up with a very sore patch on the side of her foot just under her little toe. It's basically hard skin, but like an oval raised area about an inch long. I thought it would get better once she stopped wearing the boots, but it hasn't- it's 3 weeks now. Does it sound like a corn? Doctor or chiropodist? Can she see a chiropodist without going to the doctor first? Any ideas?
Surely a 17 year old makes her own appointments though? Am I endowing 17 year old's with more sense than they actually have? I was living away from home at that age and my Mum had nothing to do with my foot health or any other for that matter! She's almost 18!
