Corns-and-callousesCorns and Calluses

A localized thickening of the outer layers of the skin. They are superficial in nature and do not extend into the dermis. These lesions develop when excessive pressure is applied to the skin…the body’s response is to create a protective covering. The only way to permanently remove the corn/callouses is to redistribute the pressure, or to increase the internal cushioning. Treatment can range from simple debridement scraping away the thickened skin to orthotic management (which will redistribute the excessive pressure) or by using a dermal filler (to increase the internal padding).
