Calluses - Information and Treatment

Calluses are caused by friction and pressure from skin rubbing against bony areas when wearing ill-fitting shoes, poor quality shoes, or various foot deformities. If the first signs of soreness are ignored, calluses show up as a rough patch or area of skin.

RECOMMENDATIONS: In addition to emphasizing the importance of wearing properly fitted shoes , the doctor will recommend a variety of patches and creams to protect and soften the calluses as they heal.
