Our body is a natural healer It tries everything to prevent itself from harm but sometimes those prevention tactics becomes everlasting.Corns and calluses are one of those prevention tactics, Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. They most often develop on the feet and toes or hands and fingers.
Corns that form between the toes are called soft corns, and they are not as firm as other corns because of moistness between the toes. Corns are smaller than calluses and have a hard center surrounded by inflamed skin and they are painful when pressed.
Calluses usually develop on the soles of your feet, especially under the heels or balls, on your palms, or on your knees. Calluses are rarely painful and vary in size and shape, though they’re often larger than corns.
These corns and calluses are everlasting and can only remove by treatment; Dezire clinic presents corn removal treatment.
What is the procedure?
First a local anesthesia is applied. Then RF cautery is used to remove the superficial dead layer till the normal skin is reached which is identified by pin point bleeding on the surface. Stitches are seldom needed and the patient can resume normal activity immediately after the procedure.
Post op care
The procedure is completely safe hence there are no long term side effects. But there will be minimal pain which can be eliminated with prescribed pain killers. You can start walking immediately after the procedure
Wear comfortable shoes. Wear shoes that do not cramp your toes. Adjust your walking style. An improper gait, such as walking on the sides of your feet, can produce calluses and corns. Look at the heels on an old pair of shoes. If one side is markedly worn, you may be shifting your weight unevenly as you walk. Protect your skin.
