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.
