Corns and Callus
What Are Corns And Callus?
Callus is an area of thickened, hard skin that may appear yellowish in colour. It can occur in a number of places on the foot, commonly on the heel or an area of pressure. If the pressure continues to build on this area this may result in a corn. A corn is a cone shape of hard skin that impinges into the skin.
What You Might Experience:
- Callus: Thickened, hard skin which will appear yellow in colour
- Corns: Thickened, hard skin with a central area. Can cause a ‘sharp shooting pain’
How Can It Be Treated?
Treatment for thickened callous and corns will need to carried by a Podiatrist. During a Routine Treatment, your podiatrist will use a blade to remove the thickened skin. This is a painless procedure and will reduce pain and discomfort instantly.
