Removing Corns and Calluses

Monday, 06 March 2017 20:47

Among foot conditions, corns and calluses are often seen as some of the more harmless concerns. Regardless, if either condition does become troublesome, there are methods available for removal. Because calluses are essentially small areas of thick, hardened skin, softening them can help aid in their removal. Soaking the feet in warm water and avoiding using harsh soaps while washing can help maintain softness of the skin. Hard areas can also be buffed away using a pumice stone. If you are suffering from corns or calluses and seek ways to remove them, consult with your podiatrist.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact Dr. Celeste M. Borchers at Lone Star Podiatry & Surgery. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.
