One of the most common problems Podiatrist in Wexford treat are corns and calluses. Here are some FAQ our Cranberry Foot Doctor answers everyday to help you deal with your foot problem.
What is a callus? A callus is thickened hard skin that often form on the bottom of the feet in the outer layers of your skin.
What is a corn? A corn has a deep nucleus of hard skin in its center and is usually found on and between the toes, or on the bottom of the foot. These can be painful.
How to treat calluses:
- Shave the callus off (don’t try this at home)
- Apply OTC corn pads (not to be applied on or between toes!)
- Cut the corn out ( see your podiatrist)
- Pads to take away pressure
- Shoe inserts with area under callus cut out
- Fix the bone under the callus to take away the pressure (can be done in office!)
Callus treatment should be done by a Board Certified Podiatrist who has the proper sterile tools for removing foot corns and calluses on feet. Plantar calluses, which means hard skin on the bottom of the foot) are not always bad, you may even ask.”Are calluses good for you?” and the answer is sometimes yes.
If you are wondering how to get rid of calluses permanently, there’s only one way. This would be a simple office procedure to reduce pressure under the area. For example, How do you get rid of corns on your pinky toes? Lightly numb the toe, gently cut through the outer skin, then snip the little arthritic piece of bone and sew the area shut!
Corn vs callus:
How do you get rid of corns on feet? and how to get rid of seed corns? How can I get rid of my corns permanently?… Corns have a painful hard core in the center, these can get fairly thick and deep and the pain is caused by the hard dead skin putting pressure on the small nerves under the skin of the foot. It’s almost as if you have a rock in your shoe.
the easiest way is to numb the area with a little novacaine and release the skin surrounding the corn. Then the Podiatrist uses a specialized tool to gently scoop it out and separate it from the deep tissue underneath.
How do you get rid of a soft corn? The same way!
