The Crazy Suburban Mom: Ever think of using a ped-egg?

Ever think of using a ped-egg?

Yeah me too, with some unintended consequences....

Nine of them to be exact.

See this?

pedegg

That's my toe covered with duct tape.

Want to know what that has to do with a Ped -Egg?

Read on....

Well, it seemed like a good idea at the time... I checked out all the warnings and precautions...

• For intended use only
• Do not use on irritated, inflamed or infected skin, or on open wounds.
• Do not use if you are diabetic or have poor blood circulation.
• Do not use if metal becomes rusted, bent or damaged, injury may result.
• Consult a physician before use if any skin conditions exist.
• Intended for use on callused feet only, do not use on uncallused, smooth skin.
• Seek medical attention if skin becomes severely irritated or bleeds.
• As a personal care product, Ped Egg™ is not recommended to be shared or used by more than one person.

Check, check, check on all of that... except for one thing... Apparently I had a small plantar's wart I didn't know about.


And than there were five... All in a neat little line


Sort of like how I used the Ped-Egg...


And than I got four more...because warts spread like a cold in a day-care facility.


The one on my toe is the only one left. It's covered with mediplast and duct tape. Which is how I got rid of the other eight.


It wasn't the Ped-Eggs fault because clearly the Ped-Egg wasn't meant to be used on warts. But C'mom. There is a point when they are so small you really don't know you have them. And I hadn't had one in....Oh? Decades? I was thinking more about my soon to be smooth and silky feet... not so much my soon to be wart covered feet.

So, would I use one again?

That would be a no.

Although it's rockin' effective for spreading warts.

If the need to do that ever arises...

Oh my gosh, that just stinks! I have a Ped Egg and use it on my nasty scaly and not so cute looking calluses. I'm sorry that you had this problem, but it is kinda funny. Just a wee bit! lol

The commercial makes me want to hurl. When they empty the Ped egg in the trash I want to faint. Poopy diapers don't faze me but the Ped Egg sends me over the edge of the toilet, I have no idea why! Thanks for checking out my blog.

Oh no, that is horrible! Your poor foot. Sigh.
See what we do all in the name of beauty?

I am with Charlotte...the commercial doesn't make me want to go run out and buy one.

But thank you for the giggle. I am sorry, but just the way you told the story...it was a little funny.

tracy 5/7/09, 8:41 AM  

Gibby, Yes, I agree... what we do for beauty!

Nichay - The commercial is awful. But its not as bad as those bowel cleansing ones. omg, have you seen those? Now those are truly horrifying!

Christa 5/7/09, 2:02 PM  

I bought one, it only works right after you get out of the shower.
I got planters warts as a teen, I had 45 on one foot...after TONS of duct tape and scraping they were gone...until after I had my twins I got 5 at once. They are so gross!
Thanks for the comment on my blog, it's nice to meet you too.

45???? Omg. I'm feeling much better about my 9 now. Bless you :)

Nichay 5/7/09, 5:25 PM  

HAHA Yes I agree, the bowel cleansing one is waaayyy worse. I just momentarily forgot about it.
