Don’t Let Corns and Calluses Drive You Mad

March Madness is upon us, and college basketball fans are ready for non-stop action on the hardwood. All eyes will be on the players—will there be a Cinderella story, or will a number one seed take the big dance? The athletes have been preparing for months, and they’re ready to leave everything on the floor.

Such intense play can be damaging to the feet. The sudden starts, stops, and quick turns of the game can cause friction between the shoes and the feet. Common foot conditions such as corns and calluses can occur in this situation. The skin thickens and hardens as it tries to safeguard itself.

One of the main differences between corns and calluses are their locations. Corns tend to be found on the toes where there is less pressure, while calluses typically form on the soles of the feet. While not always painful, these foot conditions can become irritated and uncomfortable.

Whether you’re a college basketball player, a business woman, or retired, great fitting footwear is one of the best ways to avoid calluses and corns. Tight shoes, oversized shoes, and high-heels can all be harmful to your feet. Take time to have your feet measured before you shop, and find shoes that fit your feet well.

Many people treat these concerns at home with good results. Using pads and finding the proper footwear will be very helpful in resolving these common foot conditions. If corns and calluses persist, your podiatrist can treat them by trimming, topical medications and treatments, or custom orthotics that will protect vulnerable areas of the feet.

Is foot pain keeping you out of the game of life? Don’t sit the bench, call the offices of Dr. Marco Vargas today for answers to your foot health questions. With convenient locations in Sugarland, Missouri City, and Houston, TX, we look forward to serving you. You can also schedule an appointment online.
