Corns and Calluses
Foot Treatment in Coconut Creek, FL
Corns and calluses are pockets of hardened layers of dead skin that can make it painful to walk. They are typically caused by friction (such as the rubbing of the foot against a shoe) or regular pressure on the foot. Corns are round and usually have a tender spot in the center with dead skin around it. They are most commonly found on the toes. Calluses are flatter sections of dead skin and are usually found on the soles of the feet.
A few common causes of corns and calluses include:
- Improperly fitting shoes (shoes that are too tight or too loose)
- High heels that place too much pressure on the front of the foot
- Improperly fitting socks
- Toe deformities (claw toe, hammertoe, etc.)
