I put Footner on my feet a couple of weeks ago, just to get rid of the last bits that were going to hurt with a foot file, and now they look horrendous. I've had a bath for the past 4 days to try to soften up the skin and get it off but it just seems to make it worse. My feet really weren't that bad to start off with. What's going to get rid of all this flaky skin?
Not relevant to the OP, but to answer cheersmedea's question, I read loads about Footner on here. It didn't work for me, despite leaving on for extra time, soaking my feet every night and doing a second round as soon as I could. Mine peeled and peeled and peeled, but wound up exactly the same as they started . But my feet are really dry and hard (sexy). It probably works better on normal feet.
I did this in Jan. My feet were ok (i file them twice a week) but teen DDs were doing it and got me a pack and we did it together. 2 hours in the gooey boots.
It took 2 weeks to start peeling. When it started it started round my ankle bones Little bits kept peeling off randomly like yours OP for nearly 3 bloody weeks.
In all that time - the 2 weeks waiting to peel and then the 2/3 weeks of sort of peeling - i didn't do my usual foot filing 'cos i didn't know if should, and by the end of it all my feet started to get dry hard skin for the first time ever and were worse than before the treatment. sigh.
