So I was walking in rain with wet socks for about 4 hours, NY right foot looks like this now but left foot is fine I'm so freaked out.
My guess is it isn't fungus(I hope) and the sock was cotten so it had those cotton balls.
Plz will my fucking skin heal back to normal?
My guess is th
>all bubbly and shit
>part of the upper skin sitting like a worn sheet over more gray shit
Uhhhhh... I'd start by taking a foot file to that heel and getting all that nasty shit off your foot pronto. Then if it looks wholesome, good, but if not, see a fucking doctor, shit looks gross. Like maybe it's just a bunch of dead skin, but jesus, my feet have never looked like that from any sock.
looks more like a verruca
don't worry OP, it's a pretty common easily curable viral infection. go to a doctor if you're worried, if not just buy some wart/verruca cream and apply that shit like twice a day
haha this happens to anyone who has hiked in wet socks or is engaged in watersports
I think it's the pores in your feet opening to give you more grip on wet surfaces, it's evolutionary
nothing to worry about, they shrink when your foot dries out a bit, then disappears altogether
it's not uncommon for a bit of skin to rub off either
all good man
ha here you go OP, found the actual science
in short it's a surface bacteria infection, it's farirly common and you can read up on it
I have had it many times, and it just goes away after a few days of dry feet while some of the skin falls away
Picture of my foot with better lighting, isn't it just dead skin that was eaten away by my sock since itvwad wet?
not really, the pitting is caused by water-logging and bacteria eating at it
anyway if you keep your foot dry it will get better, you can walk around and shit just keep the foot dry
wash the socks you have been wearing, and swap wet socks for dry socks as required
topical antibiotics can help too if you need them
the condition is caused by bacteria, not the socks
Either a troll thread or OP is genuinely retarded. I work IT and he reminds me of the fuckers that have to ask a million times about the solution I give them in plain and simple english.
Your foot is fine like that man said now fuck off.
I think you'll be okay. Keep an eye on it.
It looks to me like the skin puckered because it was wet for so long, and the texture of your soggy sock got sort of embedded in it.
You should never go that long in wet socks, though. There is always a risk of infection. My ex Navy buddy told me about how the skin on the bottoms of both of his feet had to be peeled off by medics because he'd been running in water logged boots for several hours.
Might be the start of trench foot OP. It's a bacterial infection from having your feet wet for long periods of time, soldiers in WWI/II got it all the time. Go get it checked out before it becomes gangrenous and they have to cut your foot off.
