Corns And Calluses

Treat painful Corns and Calluses at Lidcombe Podiatry with expert podiatric care, restoring comfort to your feet quickly

Corns and calluses are common foot conditions that stem from the skin’s response to pressure and friction. Typically forming on feet and toes or areas that bear weight, these hardened layers of skin develop to protect sensitive tissues from ongoing irritation. As persistent pressure can lead to discomfort and even pain, effective treatment is crucial. 

At Lidcombe Podiatry, we specialise in identifying and managing these issues, offering tailored Corns and Calluses treatments that not only alleviate pain but also address the underlying causes. Serving the Cumberland area, our clinic provides premier podiatric care and ensures each patient receives the most effective solutions for foot health.

What's Involved in Corns And Calluses Treatment?

Treating corns and calluses involves several steps to ensure comfort and prevent recurrence:

  1. Assessment: A thorough examination helps identify the exact type and severity of the corn or callus.
  2. Removal: Professional removal of the hardened skin can be performed safely, minimising the risk of infection.
  3. Padding and Offloading: To relieve pressure, padding techniques are applied, along with offloading devices if necessary.
  4. Medication: Topical medications may be used to soften the skin and promote healing.
  5. Footwear Advice: Proper footwear recommendations are provided to reduce pressure points.
  6. Ongoing Care: Regular follow-up appointments are scheduled to monitor progress and prevent future issues.

        Types of Corns And Calluses

        Corns and calluses come in various forms, each with unique characteristics.

        Hard Corns

        These are small, concentrated areas of hard skin, typically found within a larger area of thickened skin or on the top of toes where there is pressure against the shoe.

        Plantar Calluses

        Developing on the sole of the foot, these calluses are larger and usually less defined than corns. They form in weight-bearing or high-friction areas.

        Soft Corns

        Located between toes, these stay soft due to moisture from sweat. They can become very painful due to their location.

        Seed Corns

        These tiny corns often appear on the bottom of the feet and may be the result of blocked sweat ducts.
