Callused feet are no laughing matter!
If left unattended for quite some time and callused skin development progresses far enough, it will become thick, painful and a source of frustration.
If you're continually dealing with calluses and corns, you'll want to learn about the common causes and the best callus treatment so you can start taking actions to reverse this condition.
How do calluses and corns form?
As you walk and run your foot is subjected to extraordinarily high loads.
When your foot is subjected to excessive pressure or friction, calluses and corns develop to protect the underlying skin from irritation. Although the body develops calluses and corns for protection, they can cause damage if left untreated.
Calluses and corns are normally harmless, but they can cause skin irritation, infections, and ulcers, especially in those who have diabetes or poor circulation in their feet.
Who is more likely to get calluses and corns?
The physical challenges imposed on your body will cause your body to adapt. There are a variety of numerous reasons why unwarranted pressure may be placed on one's foot and you are more likely to develop calluses if:
You regularly use footwear that is too tight (i.e. ill-fitting high heels, boots that are not well-adjusted).
You walk or run for long stretches of time.
You already have medical problems that cause your feet's bones to be out of position such as hammer toes, bunions or bone spurs.
Your day to day activity entails prolonged standing.
Doing repetitive activities, putting recurrent pressure on the same spot (i.e. sports activities and manual laborer).
Going barefoot or not wearing socks with footwear.
To Remove Or Not To Remove?
Calluses and corns might grow larger in size if left untreated and can become infected. In severe cases, this can affect your posture as it makes walking difficult. The best treatment? Prevention, of course!
