Planter fibroma, have a question


It all started about 3 years ago when i was first diagnosed with it on my right foot. First cortisone injection lasted 3 months, the second which was stronger lasted me almost two and a half years. As of right now I feel three more on the bottom of my right foot, next to the origional one. And one on my left foot, making a total of five.
From my understanding you shouldnt have more than 3 shots of cortisone in a years time.
Would each area require a seperate shot?
Are there any alternatives to the shot other than an alchohol injection?
How about a topical cream or soaking foot in salt water? I know about the special shoes out there, but due to work i need to wear non conductive safty toe boots. Any help much appreciated. Thank you
