Corns, Callous and Cracked Heels

Corns, Callous and Cracked heels are things we see A LOT. They are annoying, unsightly, and sometimes VERY painful! 

Corns differ to callus in that they form a central core (a cone shape) that pushes into deeper levels of skin. The pain that you may feel is that of walking on a pebble.

The reasons why you are developing calloused, cracked skin or corns is varied, but can include:

-  Genetic skin type prone to developing calloused or dry skin

-  Irritation or compression from ill fitting footwear

-  Thin/fragile skin

-  Certain medical conditions

-  Smoking

-  Wearing no shoes or open footwear (the main cause of cracked heels)

REST ASSURED TREATMENT IS AVAILABLE AND USUALLY SIMPLE AND PAINLESS!

See our 'Skin and Nail Treatment' or 'Medical Pedicure' for treatment

(Please avoid DIY jobs at home. We see many people who have attempted to remove themselves, even with over-the-counter treatments like corn pad and plasters, or treatments claiming to peel layers of skin away. We DO NOT RECOMMEND and can be dangerous)

We will provide individual advice and treatment to you as to the best way to treat in the short term and long term to prevent recurrence, and leave your feet healthy and smooth.
