Corns and Callus

The foot’s response to excessive pressure, calluses are an area of hard, thickened skin. Often the result of a biomechanical abnormality, tight fitting footwear, or a predisposition, calluses can be very painful.

Corns are a focal pinpoint of hard, thick skin that takes a cone form deep within the layers of the skin. The treatment of corns involves taking out the deep core and debriding the dead calloused skin away.

Professional podiatric care removes corns and calluses that cause discomfort and pain. We can also provide invaluable advice around corn and callus management with complimentary treatments including, orthotics/arch support therapy and professional footwear advice for minimising pressure areas on the foot.

Corn pads containing acid are not recommended by Podiatrists and should NEVER be used by diabetics and those with diminished circulation.
