Believe it or not, there are a lot of people who are not quite sure whether or not the patch of hardened skin that they have on their foot is some type of a wart, a callus or a corn. The best way to determine what it is that you are dealing with is to make an appointment to see the professionals at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic for foot calluses treatment in Bellevue.
If you happen to have a wart and you end up scraping it, there can be a bit of bleeding that will seem almost as though it is in a characteristic pattern. A callus will not bleed and it will be more like simply revealing more dead skin that is underneath.
Many calluses will start to disappear on their own whenever the friction or the pressure subsides. However, you may find that your podiatrist will need to shave off a layer or two of the callus to help reduce the thickness so that the area can begin to heal. Even though there are a number of over the counter remedies that are available, you will be best off going with professional treatment through Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic.
When you have a lot of tough, dry skin, it may be recommended that you use specialty creams that will moisturize the area and help to soften up the skin so that cracked and dull calluses can start to come off.
