Don’t Live With Corns and Calluses

Don’t Live With Corns and Calluses

Visit Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic for a foot examination

Do you have areas of thickened skin on your feet that are rough, dull-looking, raised, rounded and possibly painful? You’re probably dealing with corns or calluses. Thankfully, the specialists at Bozeman Foot and Ankle Clinic can treat your damaged feet.

Corns and calluses grow when something rubs against your foot repeatedly or when there’s excess pressure against a part of the foot. They’re both a thickening of the skin – they’re called corns when they grow on the top of the foot and calluses when they grow on the bottom of the foot.

Corns usually pop up when toes rub against the inside of your shoe. Calluses will appear when there’s excessive pressure on the balls of the feet, like when you wear heels. If corns or calluses are causing you pain or discomfort, or inhibiting your daily life in any way, it’s time to visit our podiatrists. Call us today for more information.
