Corns & Calluses

Cracked heels can range from a cosmetic problem to a painful condition. In most cases, it can lead to deep cuts that can hurt. The feet flex, so the excessive skin is often painful and the thickened skin becomes just like driving around with a pebble in your shoe.

Understanding Corns and Calluses

Corns and calluses are thickened layers of skin that develop as a result of pressure on the foot. While these conditions can be uncomfortable, they can be effectively treated with proper care.

At Dovestone Health, our podiatrists specialize in treating, removing, and alleviating discomfort caused by corns or calluses. We will assess the underlying cause of your corns and calluses, which often include factors such as tight-fitting shoes, foot deformities, and abnormal gait.

Our treatment approach includes gentle debridement of the corn/callus and follow-up care, which may involve custom orthotics or footwear correction to help alleviate these painful complaints. We also provide guidance on maintaining healthy feet, including proper moisturizing and skin protection with padding.

Our goal at Dovestone Health is to make you feel comfortable and confident, ensuring your feet look and feel their best. We offer comprehensive podiatry care to find effective solutions for corns and calluses on feet.
