The Crazy Suburban Mom: Yes, I tried a Ped-Egg

Yes, I tried a Ped-Egg

Since Miss Vonlipi asked...

And a few other people emailed me about it. Yes, I have used a ped-egg. Back in May I posted about it and since I didn't link to it in the last post about foot care I will just reprint it because back in May I had minus two people reading my blog.

Ever try a Ped- Egg? Yeah me too, with some unintended consequences....

Nine of them to be exact.

See this?

ped egg


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 faster than 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? And I was thinking more about my soon to be smooth and silky feet and not so much about 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 that particular need ever arises...


**FTC Disclosure**

I have no personal relationship with the Ped-egg people (Doesn't
that make them sound like Weebles?) but my warts did.

I absolutely love your blog! I read the cream entry first and now I have to rush out in the cold to buy the ingredients. Brrrr! At least I don't have to get a Ped-Egg. lol. I did try that hair removal thing you see advertised. It took my skin off! Talk about painful! Thanks for visiting junkblossoms again. It's always good to see you! Pat

Oh yuck! I've used the ped egg but I've never had that problem. Warts are such a pain!

Oh this is the post for me! Two Xmases ago my daughter Lindsay gave me one. It was immediately removed from my hands by my daughter Chelsea. She was like "Lindsay! Are you nuts? Do you know what mum could do to herself with that?". And with that, I was no longer the owner of Ped Egg. My reputation for hurting myself precedes me.

Back about 8 or so years ago I had a huge wart on the inside of my finger. It was grosse - about the size of a pea. I had had it for a few years and tried everything to get rid of it. One day after staining a piece of furniture I washed up with mineral spirits. When I woke up the next day, it was gone. As in not a flippin' trace of it! Cool huh! Don't know why, or how but it happened and I was happy. And that is my ever-so-interesting story for today.

Thank you, Pat! I'm glad I found your too. The vintage TT post you did with the pins was so special!

Shelly, I know it wasnt the ped-egg per se...But you really just dont know you even have one when its small!

Maureen - LOL! Those things are pretty sharp!

Misguided - Yes, thats the thing. If theres nothing there theres nothing there! But if there is, they are gonna be allll over your feet! And it took months to get rid of them!
