Corns and Callus

22/01/2018 0 Comment(s) Foot Problem,


Corn or Callus is a common skin problem. They are layers of dead skin cells that build up on the pressure area of the foot, forming areas of the skin that are hardened and thickened. The tissue of the callus is thicker and diffuse, while corns have a conical or circular shape.
Corn is common in long-term compression position, such as the toes, soles, heels, forefoot or metatarsal bone, etc., while the callus is common in the soles of feet. They are signs of  foot problems.

Proper shoe insoles can reduce thick skin hyperplasia. A podiatrist can help you identify the cause of the corns or callus and disinfect them with disinfected instruments and tools, and give the patient advice on optional foot care products.
