Calluses on your Feet
Calluses are thick patches of skin that develop on your feet when there is excessive friction and pressure applied. Calluses can become a problem if they are not managed properly. Our doctors at Mercer-Ocean Podiatry encourages wants our patients to visit us if you notice signs any calluses forming.
We advise our patients to always wear shoes when they’re outdoors to avoid developing calluses on your feet. Since there are many rough surfaces outdoors, your feet creates calluses that crack and make it painful to walk and wear shoes.
To help manage your calluses you can use a variety of products available at the store including foot soaks, pumice stones, and files. Other ways to manage calluses include moisturizing, exfoliation, and pedicures.
Remember to wear shoes outdoors and take extra precautions to prevent calluses from developing.
