Oh no! I'm so sorry you're going through this, Tori! Have you seen a doctor? Maybe there's something they can give you to treat the burn.
I'm surprised that you had this problem with a pair of US-made shoes. Are they a well-known brand? It makes me wonder if they are really US-made... Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but my impression is that it's not uncommon for Chinese fakes to be marked as being made in a different country. I remember there was some problem with fake Colgate recently, that was marked as being made in South Africa, but was actually from China.
Thank you so much for posting, Tori, and please let me know if there's anything we can do to help!
