Shoe Bites

We often suffer from shoe bites. These can occur due to wearing new or ill-fitting shoes. Whenever you buy a new pair of shoes, use these preventive measures to prevent shoe bites.

Apply a little petroleum jelly inside your shoe. Leave it on overnight. Clean it off with a cloth and then wear your shoes.
Apply coconut oil inside your shoes for three consecutive nights to soften them before wearing. You could apply castor oil too.
Apply some raw potato slices inside the shoe and particularly the heel area. Repeat for two nights before wearing your new shoes.
In case you still get a shoe bite, try the following:

RICE

Take half cup rice. Pound it to a powder and then add enough water to make a thick paste. Apply the paste on the shoe bite. Leave it on till dry.
Rinse gently with lukewarm water. Dry the feet thoroughly. You will get immense relief.

NEEM AND TURMERIC PASTE

Take a few neem leaves and add to them a tablespoon of turmeric powder. Add a little water and put it into mixer to form a thick paste. Apply this paste on the painful shoe bite. This gives tremendous relief and also dries up the bite.
