What is a Callus?
A callus is an area of thick, hardened skin usually found over a bony area of your foot, on your heel or around the ball of your foot.
Causes of Calluses
Calluses be caused from wearing poor fitting shoes that are either too tight or types of shoe such as heels, flip flops, slip ons or wellingtons.
Treatments for Calluses
To reduce the chance of getting a callus, look into wearing cushioned, shock absorbing shoes and insoles, and try to limit the amount of time you wear high heels. Also, use moisturising foot cream or heel balm to avoid dryness.
