Horrific recordings show that & # 39; Miss Foot Fixer & # 39; cut a patient's cracked skin on her heels and toes with a scalpel
- Miss Foot Fixer said that if untreated, dry, cracked skin can lead to infection
- The YouTube star provides an overview of videos & # 39; s from its London-based clinic
- The patient's cracks were deep and needed many different tools to be treated
A horrible video shows that a podiatrist wipes himself against an accumulation of cracked skin at the bottom of a patient's foot.
Marion Yau, who herself & # 39; Miss Foot Fixer & # 39; mentions on YouTube, said she likes to deal with hard skin and cracked heels.
She worked at the London & # 39; s Harley Street Foot and Nail Clinic and carefully scraped the tools of an unnamed female patient for an hour with a tool.
Eventually the woman giggled at her touch because she had built up such thick skin that her feet had become numb.
At the end, the difference between the treated and untreated foot is visibly clear, but Miss Foot Fixer says that the patient must moisten the foot to help heal
Miss Foot Fixer warned that if left untreated for a long time, cracks can become so deep that the feet can bleed, discharge or become infected.
The patient said that she had been to a pedicure in the summer, a few months ago, where they might have treated some of the dry skin.
But after seeing Miss Foot Fixer, she said she would never come back for a pedicure because & # 39; you don't know how well & # 39; they clean the tools and foot baths.
The video shows Miss Foot Fixer scraping the top layer of hard skin with a scalpel.
She encourages viewers not to try this at home because it is easy to cut yourself.
She then works on tearing the deep heel with a gauge knife, followed by filing the balls of the feet to the & # 39; superficial hard skin & # 39; to get.

Ms. Yau said that the cause of hard and dry skin is due to dehydration and pressure build-up, and it can cause a lot of pain
After cleansing with antiseptic, she goes to work on the deeper hard skin beneath.
At this point the woman starts to laugh – presumably because she had regained the sensation she lost through thick skin.
Finally, Miss Foot Fixer drills the deep heel cracks – called cracks – with a machine tool.
At the end, the difference between the treated and the untreated foot is visibly clear, but Miss Foot Fixer says that the patient must moisten the foot to help heal.
Viewers noted that many & # 39; professionals & # 39; make the foot look like & # 39; butcher & # 39 ;.
Ms. Yau said that the cause of hard and dry skin is due to dehydration and pressure build-up, and that it can cause a lot of pain.
Dr. Anton Alexandroff, spokesperson for the dermatologist and spokesperson for the British Skin Foundation, said: “The patient is likely to have dermatitis or psoriasis of her feet.
He said: & # 39; The practitioner removes thick skin, but the patient should consult a specialized dermatologist to treat the underlying condition.
& # 39; It can be treated with emollients, steroid cream and sometimes very powerful medication called Toctino (alitretinoin). & # 39;
WHAT CAUSES CRACKED CHOPPING?
Cracked heels, also called heel slits, are a fairly common foot condition.
For many people, they are only a nuisance or cosmetic problem, but if the cracks are deep, they can be painful when you get up. Cracked heels can also bleed.
Cracked heels are usually caused by dry skin (xerosis) and are more difficult to treat if the skin around the edge of the heel is thickened or callous.
In severe cases, the cracks or fissures can become infected.
About 20 percent of American adults aged 21 and over (about 44 million people) have experienced cracked skin on their feet, according to the 2012 Foot Foot Assessment of the NPD Group for the Institute for Preventive Foot Health.
The problem is more serious in women who report the condition at a speed that is more than 50 percent higher than in men.
In addition to dry skin, there are other causes for cracked heels:
- Biomechanical problems that increase the pressure in the heel.
- Long standing, especially on hard floors.
- Obesity, which increases the pressure on the normal fat pad under the heel, causing it to expand sideways. If your skin is not flexible and flexible, the pressure can cause cracks or fissures.
- Open backs on shoes or sandals, allowing the fat pads in the heel to expand sideways and increase pressure on the skin, causing it to burst.
- Some medical conditions make people prone to dry skin. For example Sjögren's syndrome, a rare condition, psoriasis, eczema and fungal infections.
