Corns & Calluses

Enjoy Comprehensive Foot & Ankle Care

Corns and calluses are common foot problems that are typically caused by friction or pressure on your feet. These conditions are sometimes painful and can cause unsightly hardened skin on your feet and toes. Our podiatrists can help you resolve these foot problems with corns and calluses treatment in Levittown and New York, NY.

Causes of Corns & Calluses

The difference between a corn and a callus is that a corn has a core in the center that’s firmer than the rest of it. The skin surrounding a corn is generally irritated and painful when touched, whereas a callus does not cause pain. A hard layer of skin develops around the foot to defend itself against irritation, friction, or pressure placed on your foot from your shoes or the ground. The longer this pressure continues, the worse the corn or callus will get.

If you suffer from hammertoes or bunions, you may develop a corn or callus where your shoes rub against the top of your toe. The style and size of shoes you wear can also cause corns or calluses to form through repeated friction on certain areas of your feet. Lastly, if you have abnormal foot function for any reason, it may cause corns or calluses to form on your feet.

Treatment Options

At-home treatments for corns and calluses include soaking your foot in warm, soapy water, then filing away the surface with a fine emery board. However, if the pain persists, we highly recommend scheduling an appointment at one of our offices. Our team will let you know if your corn is caused by simply wearing the wrong shoes, a deformity, or biochemical pathology.

We can work with you to determine the cause and come up with the best treatment plan for your corns or calluses depending on your unique case, lifestyle, and foot needs.
