Any ideas on how to avoid little burns on the tops of my feet, from floorwork in my modern dance class? Somebody in class showed me a scar from an old burn. I already may have a few little scars.<P>Was thinking of using a small amount of baby powder, moisturizer, or oil, but only on the TOP of my feet and not enough to make a slick spot on the floor.<P>Has anyone found a solution?

Michael as you know I am not a modern dancer - but - uh - er - could you use bandaids? I have used them inside my pointe shoes when I get a sore spot.<P>In any case - I am sure one of our modern dance experts will be along any moment now to give you some really good information....<P>Just keep checking back.

New Skin Liquid Bandage. You paint it on, it stings like #### but it won't rip off like a bandaid will. It peels off in the shower (like clear nail polish).

I should clarify, this is for after you get floor burns. There's no real way to avoid them, it's just one of the joys of the profession! Image

"There's no real way to avoid them"<P>That's what my teacher said and I didn't want to believe her!<P>I'll try the New Skin to prevent infection and help healing. Not familiar with clear nail polish, but I get the picture. Image<P>Thanks.
