What’s a corn?
What are the symptoms of a callus?
You may have a callus if you have:
- Hard, dry, thick area on your foot
- Desensitized skin
- Gray or yellow coloring
- Bumpy and cracked skin
How do you get calluses and corns?
Underlying conditions, such as diabetes, peripheral artery disease, and arthritis can raise your risk. If you have diabetes, you should inspect your calluses every day to be sure you don’t develop complications.
Occasionally, a misaligned foot bone or bone spur can cause a callus. If Dr. Zwiebel suspects a bone problem, he orders an X-ray.
How can I treat my calluses and corns?
How do podiatrists treat calluses and corns?
Dr. Zwiebel and his team at Park East Podiatry treat calluses with soothing and softening medical pedicures. You soak your feet in a salicylic acid bath to soften your feet. Your podiatry specialist then gently pares off any corns and calluses. You can even have your toenails and cuticles trimmed. All instruments are sterilized.
After your medical pedicure, your feet are soft and comfortable again. Be sure to wear well-fitting shoes and massage your feet regularly to reduce the risk of recurrent calluses.
When you’re ready for soft, beautiful feet again, call Park East Podiatry to set up a relaxing medical pedicure or book an appointment online.
