My daughter came home with “pool feet” this weekend. You know, the condition caused when you push off the rough-bottomed pool for seven straight hours until the skin is literally filed down on the pads of your toes? My daughter’s toes were tender, red and swollen–ouch! I applied Balm at night (put on old socks to protect her sheets from staining) and she was ready to take on the pool the next day.
Balm might as well be called “Foot Balm” because it’s awesome for cracked heels, softening calluses, clearing up dry skin around the nails and it even seems to relieve the pain of bunions. Again, apply liberally at night then cover with old socks and you’ll love how your feet feel in the morning.
Balm isn’t just for people feet! A dog’s foot pads can easily be damaged from running on rough or hot surfaces. Last summer my dog wore little holes in his two front pads during a camping trip (the chipmunks made him do it) and he could hardly walk the next day. We used Balm on his paws, then vet-wrapped them at night. It not only seemed to calm the immediate pain, his paws also healed quickly. Note: Balm does NOT silence the annoying slurping sounds your dog will make all night while licking his wounds, which brings me to my final point–Balm is also a wonderful paw-injury preventative (for puppy mamas who think ahead). Apply Balm to dog pads all year to support healthy, supple tissue that resists injury not only from burning hot summer walks but also rough, sharp, icy walks in winter, too!
