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

Thick, hard patch of skin that feels like a bump and is sometimes painful

Treatment Options

Medicated treatments to reduce the thick skin, or your doctor can manually reduce the lesion in their office

Treatment Option Description (with Duration)

There are over the counter pads with salicillic acid in them that can reduce the prominance of the thick skin. Your doctor can also perform a debridement in the office, which will help to alleviate the pain. Custom made orthotics are a great option for people with calluses, as they will help to adjust your biomechanics properly to limit the development.

Expected Outcome

Calluses are caused by the bony prominances rubbing during walking. Unless you remove the cause of the issue they will continue. They can be successfully managed on a long-term basis and pose very little threat to your overall well-being.

Frequently Asked Questions
