Corns and calluses are a build up of hard skin as a response to abnormal pressure or friction.
Calluses form to protect skin exposed to excessive pressure. Ironically, this often results in increased pressure and therefore pain.
Corns are also a form of hard skin, but they are much more dense than calluses. In fact, as any current or previous sufferers will testify to, corns are so dense that they feel like a small pebble or shard of glass within the foot.
The removal of corse and calluses is completely painless – this may be hard to believe considering how much discomfort and disability they can cause! Your podiatrist can remove corns and calluses immediately at your first consultation, providing instant relief.
Your podiatrist will also help you develop a treatment plan to prevent them from re-occurring.
