General Foot care – Corns, Warts and Calluses
Corns and callouses can be painful and frustrating. More seriously however, painful corns can contribute to falls in the elderly and can be a source of infection and ulceration in the diabetic and high risk foot. Often for this population, corn pads and over the counter preparations are neither appropriate or effective.
Hinkler Podiatry provides professional, hygienic treatment of painful corns and callouses in addition to nail care and general foot hygiene. Warts are different from corns as they are viral in origin and often affect school aged children.
There are numerous methods for treating warts, however care must be taken to avoid aggressive treatment which can result in scarring under the foot as scars can be just as painful as the wart.
