Feet First Podiatry

Corn and Callus

How can we help?

Corns and calluses are thickened and hardened areas of skin that develop on the feet due to repeated pressure or friction. Corns usually form on the tops and sides of toes or between them, while calluses can develop on the bottom of the feet or heels. They can be painful and uncomfortable.

A podiatrist can professionally remove corns and calluses. They have the expertise to safely and effectively treat foot conditions, including corns and calluses, to provide relief and prevent further issues.

To treat corns and calluses, it’s essential to remove the source of pressure or friction and wear well-fitted shoes. Gently exfoliating the thickened skin with a special podiatry drill or sandpaper can also help. However, if they are painful or persistent, it’s best to seek advice from a podiatrist who can provide advice on proper footwear, prescription insoles and foot paraffin wax bath to prevent them from recurring.

皮和鸡眼是由于脚部反复受到压力或摩擦而发生的皮肤变厚和硬化的区域。玉米通常在脚趾的顶部和侧面或者在它们之间形成,而鸡眼则可以在脚底或者脚跟形成。它们可能会感到疼痛和不适。

足病医师可以专业地去除玉米皮和鸡眼。他们有专业知识,可以安全有效地治疗脚部疾病,包括皮和鸡眼,以提供舒缓和预防进一步问题。

为了治疗皮和鸡眼,有必要消除压力或摩擦的来源并戴合适的鞋子。用特殊的足病手术钻或砂纸轻轻去除变厚的皮肤也有帮助。然而,如果它们疼痛或持久存在,最好向足病医师寻求建议,他们可以提供有关正确鞋履、处方鞋垫和脚部石蜡浴的建议,以防止它们再次出现。
