How can I quickly cure calluses on foot?

How can I quickly cure calluses on foot?

Callus: Usually calluses are formed due to increased pressure. To get rid of them may involve orthotics, change in shoegear, or even potentially surgery. You can make them less painful with the use of moisturizers after getting your feet wet to the dry/callused areas. Or use of a pumice stone daily after getting your feet wet as well. I would not advise you take a razor to your feet! Read more

What can you do for a callus on the ball of your foot?

What can you do for a callus on the ball of your foot?

Solution to callus: Hello and thank you for your question,
Callus formation is commonly due to ill-fitting shoes that may cause a patient to walk in a manner that creates the callus. My first suggestion would be to identify that shoe that you may feel is causing the problem and purchase sole pads to insert in them. If it is an isolated callus, a callus cushion may be beneficial. Good luck. Dr. Kosari Read more
