Corns and calluses
CORNS AND CALLUSES
The corns are a thickening of the skin, with an often painful core. They are more often found in areas where the pressure on the foot is greater. Corns can grow under the feet or between the toes.
Calluses, on the other hand, are more diffuse indurations of the epidermis. They vary in size and extent and are often seen under the forefoot or heels. Like corns, they are also caused by friction or excessive pressure.
The best way to maintain your feet and remove the corns and calluses is to reserve a foot care with one of our podiatrists.
WHILE WAITING FOR YOUR APPOINTMENT:
- Wear cushioned shoes that support your feet;
- Apply moisturizer to problem corns and calluses;
- Do not try to remove the corns and calluses yourself;
- Avoid free-bellied medicine products. You might confuse the corns with another condition.
