Question WTF IS THIS!? *Gross*

*This is gross*


I work as a mechanic, so i'm on my feet ALL day long. Suddenly starting 2 days ago my big toe on my right foot started peeling on the palm of my foot


Keep in mind i take very good care of my body so this isn't anything like a hygenic problem!


Here's a pic:





This is the first time this has ever happened, and the only thing i can think of is........maybe it's just from being on my feet so much lately. They're working me to the bone literally as you can see.





WTF do you think it is!?

When I'm on my feet for a long time, I sometimes get that, but never on my big toe. How many hours do you work and what kind of shoes are you wearing?

yea my feet do that some too. Its just dry skin coupled with being on yoru feet all day. once the callouses get to a certain point they peel off as new skin grows underneath them. Just dont peel it to the point where you take off live skin still, or that will get infected and it hurts like a bitch.

I work Monday-Friday 8am to 6pm, then saturdays from 8am to 4pm

So that's five 10 hours days each with a half-hour lunch and one 8 hour with a half hour lunch....so that's roughly 55hrs a week with an occasional day off here or there

That's quite a few hours walking in boots that probably aren't exactly luxury loafers and you're walking on a hard surface. What's happening to your feet is just the wear and tear of your job. Eventually, the peeling will stop and your feet will just be kind of hard. But look at the bright side... on your days off, you'll be able to walk on hot coals

I've been doing landscaping and mowing for years and my feet are already like that. (I'm only 19, by the way.)

I bet that's fun to pick at. Does it hurt? It's probably just a callous peeling off. Are your shoes comfortable?

yeah, well kinda. you're feet are really caloused. you're skin is just peeling off, as you normally lose dead skin all the time. calouses are just thicker layers of dead skin, and it's just coming off. don't worry, you'll be fine.

As everyone has already said... It's nothing to worry about really. I've gotten that sometimes as well. No need to panic.

P.S. You're thread title made me think it was something WAY worse than that...
