Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop as your skin tries to protect itself from friction and pressure. They most commonly develop on the feet and toes or on the hands and fingers. Corns and calluses can be unsightly.
- If you are healthy, you only need to treat corns and calluses if they are causing discomfort. For most people, simply removing the source of friction or pressure will cause corns and calluses to go away.
- If you have diabetes or another condition that causes poor blood flow to your feet, you are at greater risk of corn and callus complications. If you have such a disease, seek advice from your doctor about proper care of corns and calluses.Corns and calluses Treatment Hyderabad

CallusOpen popup dialog
You can have a corn or callus if you notice:
- An area with thick, rough skin
- A hardened and raised bump
- Tenderness or pain under the skin
- Flaky, dry, or waxy skin
The pressure and friction of repetitive actions cause corns and calluses to develop and grow. Some sources of this pressure and friction are:
- Wear ill-fitting shoes. Tight shoes and high heels can compress areas of your feet. If the shoes are too loose, your foot can slip repeatedly and rub against the shoe. Your foot can also rub against a seam or seam on the inside of the shoe.
- Skip the socks. Wearing shoes and sandals without socks can cause chafing on your feet. Socks that don’t fit properly can also be a problem.
- Play instruments or use hand tools. Calluses on your hands can result from repeated pressure while playing instruments, using hand tools, or even while writing.Corns and calluses Treatment Hyderabad

These factors can increase your risk of corns and calluses:
- Onions. A bunion is an abnormal lump of bone that forms on the joint at the base of your big toe.
- Hammer toe. A hammer is a deformity where your toe curls up like a claw.
- Other deformations of the foot. Certain conditions, such as B. a bone spur can lead to constant friction in the shoe.
- Do not protect your hands. Using hand tools without gloves exposes your skin to excessive friction.
These approaches can help you prevent corns and calluses:
- Wear shoes that give your toes plenty of room. If you can’t move your toes, your shoes are too tight. Always have a shoe store stretch your shoes if they rub or pinch.
- Use protective coatings. Wear felt pads, non-medicated corn pads, or bandages on areas that rub against your shoes. You can also try toe separators or lambswool between your toes.
- Wear padded gloves when using hand tools. Or try padding the handles of your tools with tape or lids.Corns and calluses Treatment Hyderabad
