Hi, Perhaps, the shoes you wear are too tight and cause local injuries. I advise to: - avoid wearing tight shoes - soak your feet inside warm water and little salt and soda - apply hydrating cream - analgesic cream can help reduce pain unless injury is present Let me know if I can assist you further!
