I love my Subaru with Eyesight system. I originally bought it for my 90 year old mom because she wanted a car with side overtaking warnings. I did my research and chose the Subaru to provide the maximum assistance. When I drove it and discovered the intelligent cruise control, I was sold. I used to be a white knuckle driver in heavy traffic situations. Now I can relax and just steer.

I understand! I had an L3,4,5 spinal fusion 9 years ago and it totally shifted my "center". I had to learn to balance again. Now I'm having issues with my left hip and femur. Oh well - we still must be grateful for the medical advances that keep us on our feet and not bed ridden.

Seriously, Google is your friend. It is a foot cream, not a drug. The whole title is "Woodward's Mycocide CX Germ Killing Antimicrobial Callus Exfoliator". It has the same ingredients as many other foot creams I have tried, but in different proportions. No other foot cream I have tried works half so well - a lot of them don't work at all.

I doubt there is enough of anything in it to actually affect a foot fungus, but that's not my issue so what do I know. However a main ingredient is urea which acts as a skin/callus softener. That's where I get all the benefit.

There are other foot creams out there that have a ton of other ingredients in them. I think those don't work as well for me because some of those ingredients end up interfering with each other. The Mycocide has only the Urea (main ingredient) and benzalkolium chloride 0.10% (a weak antiseptic). There is no antifungal per se in it. Plus the regular emulsifiers and fillers that you always find in any sort of cream.

It would have made things easier if you had used the full product name to begin with


this stuff gets good reviews on amazon and is on sale @ walgreenes right now.


coconut oil works if you use it regularly and wear heavy socks. Just be careful about falling!


your feet will still hurt but they will look much better

And to those who talk so great about Crocs, I could never understand that one...these are plastic and maybe rubber. And hardly any support, if any.
Crocs are made of a propietary material they call crosselite, and it feels like rubber to me.

What are Crocs Made of?

I've worn Crocs for years and find they have significant arch support, and support under the toe joints as well. They feel good and I can walk for hours in them.

But Pywackette does have a point about being careful in any sandals, Crocs included. They can be slippery when you get your feet wet in them, say when you wear them outside in the rain or wet grass, or you can trip in them like you might any sandals. I have learned that as much as I like my Crocs, they aren't suitable for wearing everywhere.

My problem with Crocs is that I like them so much I tend to wear them after the tread on the bottom has worn out (about 3 yrs of nearly everyday wear), and they can really get slippery in wet conditions at that point. Those sandals/clogs I tend to just wear at home. But I should toss them and get new ones.

My mom has a huge problem in her feet form diabetic neuropathy. She is younger than you and it drives her crazy. It has really had an impact on her life. There are days she can't function because of the pain. She has tried several different meds, but most have awful side affects and she can't take them. She's willing to try just about anything. Sometimes a glass of wine helps.....I think it's calming her in general.

Plenty of men get bunions, and so do people of both sexes who dwell in places where they hardly ever wear shoes.

Bunions are primarily genetic, or so my podiatrist informed me when mine started to hurt and cause problems. An X-ray of my foot showed that the bones, rather than being arranged side-by-side, are in a sort of fan-shaped configuration, making for a wide forefoot, while my heel is average width.

According to the Dr., this type of foot is not uncommon (it runs in my family, men and women both), and always results in bunions if you live long enough. My options were: bunion surgery, which he didn't recommend because he did not think it would be very effective, or wearing extra-wide shoes. Guess which one I chose.
