Treatments of Calluses, Corns and ‘Seed corns’
Calluses, corns and ‘seed corns’ are hardened layers of skin that can occur on the feet and toes when they become a subject to excessive friction and pressure. Calluses and corns are often painful. But this foot problem can be treated quite easily.
Your podiatrist can undoubtedly provide you with the help you need to treat these three pathologies:
- Ablation: This is a procedure performed by a podiatrist that aims to reduce the size of the horn or partridge’s eye with a sharp and / or rotating instrument. NEVER ATTEMPT such an operation at home.
- Wearing plantar orthotics or orthopedic insoles: This helps reduce pressure on the foot and toes and corrects the posture of your feet.
- Toe straightening is a surgical procedure to correct a hallux valgus or straighten the toes.
- Wearing orthoplasty. Toe orthotics protect a toe in conflict with the neighboring toe to prevent rubbing against each other.
