Corns and Callus

The main reason that a lot of people seek treatment is for the removal of corns or calluses as they can be quite painful and can make walking quite difficult.


Callus (or callosity) is an area of hard skin which can easily be painlessly removed by the Podiatrist.

Corns are the most painful culprits of pain. They are conical shaped area of hard skin with the point of the cone deep within the tissue this may cause pain if it is pressed against a nerve. Corns can develop pretty much anywhere on the foot. Corns are often confused with verrucae.

You should be careful about using corn plasters, as they contain acids than can burn the healthy skin around the corn and this can lead to serious problems such as infection.

Corns can be easily treated by a podiatrist or foot health practitioner. As well as treating the corn the podiatrist will also aim to treat the cause and advise on footwear or provide insoles or other methods to prevent the corn returning.

I have been seeing Louise for a complex muscle wasting disease for nearly a year now. She has been helping to reduce pain in my back, shoulder and neck area. This week I had the muscle building treatment and I can honestly say that my posture is so much better and I can now lift my arms without any pain. I cannot wait to see what the future brings. Thank you so much Louise.

Today I had a long overdue ingrowing toenail issue resolved with Gold Standard footcare. Louise was a a brilliant example of a professional that takes pride in their work and made the whole procedure painless and relaxing. As a person that has had a previously bad experience on the NHS that left me worried about the procedure I can assure anyone going for nail surgery that with Gold Standard footcare you have nothing to worry about and the experience will be pain free and quick. Thank you Louise.
