Below are the risk factors that can increase your risk of corns and calluses:
What is Corn & Callus?
Corns and callus are caused by pressure and friction. Therefore, corn is a build-up of skin occurrence. Initially, this is protective, but it begins to hurt when it builds up too much. If there is a central point of highest pressure, corn will develop. This is a hardened ball of skin in the epidermal layer only. This ball (corn) is like a stone and pushes against nerves in the dermis, which causes pain. If there is too much pressure, the person's circulation or skin is fragile, it can break down into a sore/ulcer.
Over-the-counter corn cure pads with acid can also cause this, especially if not much callus, and it gets onto good skin. It often can make corns between toes worse. Long-term stopping the pressure and getting rid of what is causing the pressure is the answer to corn and calluses. Corn removal Stops the pressure, and the corn won't grow. But, of course, this is easier said than done, especially with women's shoes, deformities, and altered walking patterns causing increased pressure in an area.
Podiatrists treat corns and calluses when they cause pain and discomfort. The best measure is to eliminate the source of the friction causing them. Then, most of the time, corns and calluses will disappear.
Diabetes and other conditions causing low blood flow into your feet can cause significant risk factors and cause complications when it comes down to corns and calluses. If you have any such conditions, please see a podiatrist to care for your corn and calluses.
Corn Risk factors
Suppose you have already tried home remedies and over-the-counter products to remove your corn and your foot still hurts. In that case, you might need to consult a podiatrist for corn removal surgery.
After examing your feet, a podiatrist can tell you if you are the right candidate for corn removal surgery or not.
Corn removal surgery is a short procedure done in the office. It approximately takes less than half an hour. The corn removal procedure is done using local anesthesia to numb the affected area.
Your podiatrist uses a sterile scalpel to gently shave the layers of dead skin and get to the root of the corn.
Minor bleeding is expected during the surgery, and a few stitches might be needed to close the operated area.
After the corn is removed, your podiatrist will apply a bandage to keep the area clean and prevent bleeding.
After the operation, your podiatrist will provide you with complete instructions on treating the wound and keeping it clean to avoid infection and other possible complications.
The expected recovery time for corn removal is between 2 to 7 days. During this time, the patient has to limit all physical activities, not wear regular shoes, and avoid putting pressure on the foot.
