: HI CASSANDRA

: "I HAVE DIABETES AND NEUROPATHY IN MY FEET AND HAND THEY BURN ITCH AND GIVE ME GREAT PAIN..... I AM CONTINOUSLY SCRATCHING MY FEET AND GOUGING THEM WITH SHARP OBJECTS TO MAKE THEM FEEL BETTER, IT DON'T WORK,..."

Nadine- Just my .02 cents. Don't think scratching and gouging your puppies is going to make them shape up. You say you have diabetes which can cause decreased blood flow to your lower extremities increasing the potential for infection. Infection can lead to gangrene and eventual loss of limb(s). Swear and cuss at you feet but please don't 'scratch and gouge'.
