'My Feet Are Killing Me' Season 4: Dr Sarah treats patient Hollace whose feet smell like 'hot garbage'
Dr Sarah Haller is approached by a patient with serious fungus problems in his feet in the latest episode of 'My Feet Are Killing Me' Season 4. Dr Sarah is astonished to hear the treatment plan proposed by the patient's wife as she attempts to get to the bottom of the problem amidst the strong odor.
Dr Sarah is extremely concerned about contracting foot fungus as a foot doctor. She explains how easy it is to obtain foot fungus, from showers to pools to under pool decks, and why people should be aware of it. She is worried about her new patient Hollace, whose nail plates are abnormally thick and brittle. Hollace, embarrassed by his toes and the way they seem, seeks aid from Dr Sarah. He is accompanied by his wife, Kemi.
Hollace describes his feet as "a horror movie" since they are unsightly and stink, causing him a lot of discomfort. His wife Kemi shares her mental agony at having to look at it after being exposed to the odor for years. She hopes that Dr Sarah dips all ten of his toes in acid, which dissolves the nails and allows them to start anew. Hollace, a father of six children, wishes to find a lasting solution and recover before his mobility is hampered. Kemi, on the other hand, wishes Dr Sarah well and advises her to wear two sets of gloves and a face shield.
As Hollace describes his pain to Dr Sarah, he mentions his suspicion of an ingrown nail and a regimen devised by his wife. He admits to having to use bleach water solution, which he lathers on his feet as soon as he comes home from work. Dr Sarah is astonished to hear the couple's treatment plan and explains how bleach is not suited for one's foot in any way shape or form. She is also startled to notice that his feet have not totally worn away. Viewers of the show were shocked to hear the treatment plan and expressed their discontent on social media. A fan tweeted how they wouldn't even consider using bleach on their laundry while Hollace has been using it on his feet. Their tweet read: "I am nervous using bleach on laundry!!! Using it on skin!!?? #MyFeetAreKillingMe."
Even Dr Brad Schaeffer from the show tweeted while the episode aired concurring with Dr Sarah's statement of not bleaching our feet ever: "“Do NOT bleach your feet!” - @Doctor_Haller and EVERY doctor EVERRRRRR @TLC #MyFeetAreKillingMe."
A fan quipped that it might be Kemi's way of punishing Hollace for the torture she had to endure over the years. They tweeted: "I almost think Horace's wife wants to punish him for these stinky messed up feet. #MyFeetAreKillingMe."
Another concerned viewer tweeted: "WTF......BLEACH on your feet!!! WHO did she get this idea from? Are we sure she loves this man..like damn..... #MyFeetAreKillingMe."

Dr. Sarah, on the other hand, devises a treatment plan to combat the fungus on Hollace's feet, comparing the odor to "hot garbage." She says that having such a strong odor is typically not a good indicator. There's fungus on his heels, between his toes, on the soles of his feet, and beneath his nails, so a lot is going on with his feet. Dr Sarah warns Hollace to avoid anything that cleans bathtubs and devises a treatment plan for him that involves oral medicine. She numbs the big toes and removes the entire splintering nail while cutting the remainder. She gives Hollace some lotion, washes, and pills to use for three months. Furthermore, she chisels the fungus on his toenails, giving him a jump start on the treatment.
