Corns and Calluses

A callus (tyloma) is an area of skin that thickens after exposure to repetitive forces in order to protect the skin. A callus may not be painful. When it becomes painful, treatment is required. However, people who suffer from diabetes, poor blood circulation, or loss of sensation neuropathy should seek professional treatment even if there is no associated pain.

When a callus develops a mass of dead cells in its center (keratinocytes), it becomes a corn (heloma). Corns generally occur on the toes and balls of the feet. Calluses occur on the feet, hands, and any other part of the skin where friction is present.

Usually debridement(shaving) can give almost immediate relief of syptoms. Dr. Posner has 15 years experience debriding corns and callues for pain relief.
