We all run away from our troubles or turn a blind eye at times. We are sometimes chastised for it, and sometimes we are not. Wynonna, a patient of Dr Ebonie Vincent, who featured on the latest episode of 'My Feet Are Killing Me,' was ridiculed on the internet for being ignorant of her foot issue.

Wynonna, a young woman, claims she hasn't seen her foot in two years. Dr Ebonie Vincent, whom she approached for treatment, had some additional concerns, as strange as that may sound. Someone who has encased her foot for more than two years will stink up not only her exam room but her entire office. Her greatest dread was confirmed when she saw Wynonna, who had her left foot trapped within a boot for more than two years.

Wynonna had a series of surgeries during her life due to a malformation in her left foot (a missing bone). She learned she couldn't put her foot level on the ground after the last of her surgeries at the age of 21. Her priorities altered a few years ago after she had a baby, and she entirely ignored her foot ailment. She has now approached Dr Vincent for help in permanently removing the boot! The stench of the fungus inside the toes could stink the entire room once the boots were removed. Dr Vincent described the odor as that of rotting fruit, something zesty and sweet.

The foot revealed layers and layers of dead skin, fungal buildup between the toes - in short, a festering rotting foot. Dr Vincent was more concerned with getting underneath the debris and cleaning it all up than with Wynonna's foot deformity. She made her soak her foot in solutions for about 10 minutes to remove the initial layer. She dug deep after removing the crusty upper layer with her scalpel. Furthermore, she was afraid that if she discovered any form of infection, Wynonna would be rushed to the emergency room. Fortunately, no such infection was discovered, and she could only work on her foot from her office.

Dr Vincent cleaned up her foot and sent for a biopsy report to get a precise diagnosis. According to the report, Wynonna has three conditions: athlete's foot, onychomycosis, and congenital clubfoot. Dr Vincent stated that her primary objective was to ensure that there is no further fungal buildup and that it remains clean the way she has done it. She instructed Wynonna to clean her foot daily and to apply lotions as prescribed.

Even though Wynonna swears not to put her foot back in the position she came in with, viewers of the show don't seem to believe her. One of the agitated and enraged Twitter users wrote: "I need an update on nasty foot lady.. cause I bet money she DID NOT keep her wounds clean #updateplease #MyFeetAreKillingMe"

Most viewers couldn't believe the fact that Wynonna didn't wash her foot for two years and kept ignoring her problem like that. One of them tweeted: "So you saying you wash up with a black sock on and a boot on. You dirty for 2 years. #myfeetarekillingme That smell sent them to"

Another concerned viewer posted on the internet that giving her another boot (as Dr Vincent did) was probably a poor idea. They wrote: "Don't give her no damn boot #MyFeetAreKillingMe"

Given Wynonna's lack of awareness of her condition, a show viewer advised that she be sent to a wound care facility for adequate treatment. They stated: "@TLC
Send her to wound care. Scares me that she won’t do it out of concern. Bet she was scared but so glad she came. So glad she shared this with us. @DrEbonieV
