Corns and Calluses

If you're suffering from corns or calluses, our team of award-winning NYC foot doctors can help restore the comfort to your foot. During a consultation, we can diagnose your condition and advise on footwear, shoe inserts, and padding, or even reduce the prominence of the thick skin to eliminate any pain and prevent recurrences.


Description

Thickening of the skin in areas of repeated pressure.

Symptoms

Symptoms include thickened, hard patches of skin that feels like a bump and is sometimes painful.

Treatment Options

Medicated treatments to reduce the thick skin or manual reduction of the lesion by a doctor.

Treatment Option Description (with Duration)

A podiatrist can perform a debridement in the office. This will help to alleviate the pain. Custom-made orthotics are a great option to reduce callus formation as they adjust form during walking and the way feet absorb forces.

Expected Outcome

Calluses are caused by too much force on a single spot during walking. Unless pressure is reduced on that specific part of the foot, they will continue to come back. They can be successfully managed on a long-term basis and pose very little threat to your overall well-being unless you are diabetic or have other neuropathic conditions.
