Suffering from skin peeling, stings and very painful, applying Topical oil. Is it plantar fasciitis?

My chiropractor suggests that I am suffering from plantar fasciitis due to the way I walk, the pain I am experiencing, and the condition of my feet . I am being fitted for a custom orthodic to address this. However, I also have what appears to be skin peeling from the foot most affected. When I go to remove the skin it is painful because in reality it is attached, it just looks like it needs to come off. Sometimes this same foot stings extensively as if experiencing some nerve damage. I apply a topical oil daily to keep the skin supple, but by the end of the day, my foot is irritated again. Initially, I thought I might have an athlete s foot condition, but my symptons are only slightly like AF. Could this be related to the plantar fasciitis?

Homeopath 's  Response
Hello friend,
Thank you for choosing Health care magic.
I am a Homoeopath and so will be answering your question in the point of view of Homoeopathy.
I do not understand why a patient is so much worried about the name of the sickness. There can have a number of names for your various conditions. That will not give you relief for the complaints. I am asking like this because I am a Homoeopath. For an allopath or a chiropractitioner, the diagnosis is the first thing and then the treatment is the same standard one for every patient of that disease. In Homoeopathy, every patient is a new patient and the treatment given to each patient of the same disease will be different depending upon the individualizing characteristic features of the patients with the same disease.
By reading your question, I cannot exactly say that your problem is this or that. At least a photograph is required to see your foot. Your chiropractor may be correct to diagnose plantar fasciitis because it makes pain for your feet especially inside the sole which is usually worse when one starts walking and better on continued walking. The external device is not going to cure you; it may give some temporary relief as long as you use them.
Your peeling of the skin is a different problem. That also is not going to get cured by the topical application; it also may get some temporary relief as long as you use it. If the external application is something medicinal having an action to suppress the skin condition its application may cause to develop more severe conditions as you have mentioned.
Skin and nervous system are originally developed from the same embryological layer called Neuro ectoderm. Any suppression on the skin layer can cause problems in the Nervous system. I suppose that you had initially your skin problem of peeling from your feet. Once you started applying oils it got suppressed and started producing nerve pains in the feet. without getting anything cured.
Cure for this problem can be achieved by Homoeopathic treatment. For that this question is not sufficient. Also you have to approach an expert Homoeopathic physician who will take your case in detail and prescribe for you your genetic constitutional medicine which will not only cure your skin and nerve problem of your feet but also will give you cure for all your other problems if you have and a healthy life without any further disease in the near future.
With best wishes for a speedy recovery a very healthy future life,
Dr. C. J. Varghese
