Corns and Calluses of the Foot

Corns and calluses are a clever way of protecting your feet from blisters or open sores and can happen at any age. Your body builds up hard and dead skin to toughen the area where there is excessive pressure or friction, which is why the most common location for calluses is on the ball of the foot, although calluses can also occur on top of or between the toes. However, when a corn or callus becomes too thick, redness and pain may result.

Causes of Corns and Calluses

The development of painful corns and calluses is usually symptomatic of something else – excessive pressure on particular joints, loss of protective padding on the feet (a natural part of aging) or skin rubbing against shoes.

Treatment for Corns and Calluses

When corns and calluses are causing only mild discomfort, the best solution is often to wear wider and more comfortable shoes which allow your toes to move. Gentle use of a pumice stone to thin any corns or calluses may provide some relief from symptoms.

When these treatment options no longer provide the comfort you need, have a chat with your Baddow Hospital Podiatry Consultant about your surgical options.
