I wouldn't let any doctor cut or scrape anything off me because I heal so slowly because of the sclero. It would have to be a matter of life and death before I would even consider it!!

I am so glad that you found this particular pumice stone to work so well for you. I can see why it would,it being most sanitary, as well as effecttive!
I'm also in strong agreement with everyone else, in that when one has an autoimmune disease, healing is a factor to be strongly considered, when contemplating something such as Helen was.
Helen, I am so glad you reconsidered!
Keep us posted on how you're doing?

Just remembered my close second to getting rid of the hard skin on my feet (before my new friend, the glass pumice stone). If you soak your feet in warm water and white vinegar for a little while -- I used to soak mine about 10 minutes, then do a little pumice work, then soak them again for another 5-10 minutes and pumice them again to finish them off. Then slather on some nice cream followed by some warm woolly socks. This also works really well and softens your skin too. I never really measured the amounts. I would say maybe 2/3 water and 1/3 vinegar (I just filled the bucket as high as required for my feet and then free poured the white vinegar in).

My weirdest shoes are totally lambswool lined! They're ankle boots, black suede, and really big because of the lambswool. Very cozy.
Admittedly I tend not to wear them that often as I do look a bit like Mini Mouse on a bad shoe day. I take comfort, though, in the knowledge that I'd never get judged by fellow sufferers because they understand and know there are more important things in life.
