I know you say it is painful for water to touch these bad cases, yet I also have seen you soak the feet and scrub the jiggered feet to loosen the scales & put lotion on the scales to soften them. Is it possible to do the same with these extreme cases? Is it not better to have this pain and to have guaranteed relief from jiggers than to deal with jiggers for many more nights? I know my nerve pain due to multiple sclerosis is not the same as jigger pain. However, I will be struggling with it for the rest of my life. So, in some way I can relate. I would prefer short-term pain to pain for an unknown period of time.
Thank you Jim, the volunteers, and all the people behind the scenes. You are doing such a valuable job for lovely people and no one else wants to do this work. I am a researcher by trade. I have 2 masters degrees and almost finished my PhD in Counseling Psychology but had to withdraw due to multiple sclerosis (M.S.) and severe nerve pain in my face. I am published and was the assistant director of a research center. If you need help with research or writing letters or something like that, let me know. I currently am a writer. But the project can't be too big because I don't operate well in the heat of the summer due to my M.S.

Welcome to my Google+ page. I want to live my life more fully than I have for the past six years. I want to love my live as I did before my body was plagued with chronic pain. I have begun to do so by writing again and blogging. My blog web site is "Bends in the Road: One Woman's Journey Through Life's Turning Points" (www.bendsintheroad.com). I hope that you will join me as I explore how I and others manage through life's different ups and downs. Please drop by any time. I look forward to meeting you!
