Are you starting to notice that you are developing patches of skin on your feet that seem to be hard and thickened? If so, you should know that you are not alone and calluses such as these are very common with people of all age groups. When you find that some of the over the counter products are not working to give you relief of the uncomfortable calluses that you have, you can see us at Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic today for foot calluses treatment in Redmond.
Some of the things that you may notice when you have a callus on your foot include:
- Dry, flaky or waxy looking skin
- Pain or tenderness underneath the top layer of skin
- A rough, thick patch of skin
- A bump that is raised and hardened
You should also know that calluses and corns are two different things. A callus is something that will usually not be very painful and they will develop on the sole area of your foot, just under the heel or ball of the foot. Calluses will also vary greatly in shape and size and will be much larger than a corn.
It is always going to be best to seek the help of a professional if you have a callus that becomes inflamed, painful or is constantly rubbing on all of the shoes that you own. If you happen to have an underlying health condition, such as diabetes or poor circulation, it is also best that you work with one of our professionals to make sure that you are taken care of and that the callus is able to be successfully treated and/or removed.
