If you are currently suffering from either foot or toe corns or a heel callus, we understand how much discomfort they can cause. Both of these painful conditions caused by hard skin on the heel can range from the mildly uncomfortable right up to the unbearable.
At Waverley Foot Clinic we offer best callus and corn treatment options available, and will get back on your feet and feel better as soon as possible.
If you have any of the following symptoms, get in touch with us today:
Corns and calluses are both formed by a build-up of hard skin. Corns are usually smaller and can present as hard skin usually on the toes (although they may be on other areas of the feet). In contrast, a callus is a larger patch of hard skin, most commonly found on the sole of the foot.
In very basic terms, a corn or callus is caused when there is excess pressure rubbing on the skin, causing it to build up a thicker outer layer to protect the more sensitive layers.
Calluses and corns are actually your body’s way of protecting you from the high pressure, by building up the skin, which is why you’ll find most calluses and corns on high pressure points across your feet.
Corns and Callus build up is a painful problem that requires professional treatment. We can access the problem areas and then remove the corns and callus using a file or small blade. This is a painless procedure and will enable you to leave the clinic feeling happy and free from discomfort.
We will apply rich foot cream and give you advice how to slow down the return of corns and callus. For example, we can make custom silicon toe separators to help prevent the return of corns between the toes
Waverley Foot Clinic has a wide range of specialized foot creams to buy and take home. Our Podiatrist can advise which is the most suitable foot cream for your skin.
