Treatment options: Begin with rest, ice massage, otc anti-inflammatories, & stretching the foot/ heel throughout the day. Make sure you are wearing shoes with an appropriate amount of support...

I have really bad callosus on my feet from running, any good advice?

Possible support: Calluses are all about function....over function. The way your foot works is causing your callus to form. Would suggest new shoes if you have not already done so. Then see a Podiatrist for possible orthotics to be made to relieve the pressure if it hurts you. Do not limp or favor your foot when you run. You will hurt something else. ...Read more
