Did anyone see last nights Street Doctor?

It's where 4 doctors go around a different place every week and help people on the street with their medical problems.

There was a lady on there with bad cracked heels. One of the doctors got a banana peel and rubbed it on her feet and advised here to keep doing that.

Has anyone heard of this before or anything similar to that?

I have heard of using banana skin to help remove corns. It helps make it a ll pappy so the corn will jut come out.

I watched that last night and was sitting there saying that they ought to be referring them to people like us instead!!:lol:
Although I have heard before of using banana skins - something to do with the enzymes it contains.

I never knew that. I will have to try it to see if it really does work!!!!

I can just imagine a clients face- getting a banana out and start rubbing the skin on their heals.

When do you put the vaseline on?

If you do it in the morning does it leave them greasy all day or are they ok?- Or do you do it at night? If that makes sense!!!!

You can get white cotton bed socks in Boots or Body Shop especially for putting creams on your feet. They are really cosy and don't make your feet too hot and they are lovely and soft in the morning! :) I use them - they are brill!

I have to wear socks in bed (my feet are always cold!!!) I will find an old pair for now to put over the creams/ vaseline. I will have a look at Boots tomorrow.

Thank you
