How to cure Shoe Bites

Shoes Shoes Shoes!!! we love them much more than we hate them. I keep wondering who was the person who designed a woman’s shoe which is so uncomfortable yet so stylish.  Our feet are never shaped pointed in the front and rounded at the back. Like all of you, even I stand for the quest to find the right shoe every time I go shopping but since I have flat feet buying heels for me is a task at another level. I may buy shoes which look pretty and which are fairly comfortable but then come the ‘shoe bites’ – very innocent piece of my skin which has become a water-bubble and now the problem starts. The blister will remain for a few days and the mark will take months to go. So here is what you can do to cure shoe bites and shoe marks altogether.

How to cure shoe bites

How to cure Shoe Bites –

  1. Butter – Butter has natural healing properties and a shoe bite is usually created by the friction between the shoe and our skin. If you are able to layer your skin and avoid direct contact, your problem is solved. It is advised to massage butter on the prone areas and wash it with luke warm water before wearing a shoe.
  2. Potato juice – as much as it sounds surprising but potato is an age old technique to stay away from shoe bites. You just need to rub the potato slice on your skin. It is also said that potato helps in removing corns as well.
  3. Olive oil and honey – You should mix equal portions of olive oil and honey and create a solution. Use a cotton swab to rub it over the affected area. It will not only help treat your shoe bites but it will also help you to remove your old scars and marks.
  4. White tape – medical tape has worked the best for me. I usually keep my small toe covered with white medical tape before wearing my heels. It makes sure that I don’t get any shoe bites so there is no problem of marks.

These are a few things you can do to stay away from shoe bites but as long as we love stilettos we just can’t avoid shoe bites completely.
