Here at Alm Foot Care, our Carl Stream podiatrist and the rest of our excellent team of staff are dedicated to providing only the highest quality foot care services. Some of the most common foot problems that patients visit our Carol Stream podiatrist with are corns and calluses. Corns and calluses are thicker layers of skin on your feet (as well as on your hands and fingers) that develop as a means of protecting your skin in areas that experience a lot of friction and pressure. Corns and calluses happen to most people at one point or another, and if you are generally in good health, then you typically do not require treatment for corns and calluses unless they are causing you discomfort. In these cases, changing your footwear can often reduce the friction you are experiencing and as a result minimize the discomfort you are feeling. However, for people who have other health issues, corns and calluses may be a bigger problem that requires treatment from a professional like our Carol Stream podiatrist. For example, diabetes is a condition that can affect the feet by reducing blood flow to that area. Therefore, if you have diabetes, there is an increased likelihood that you will experience complications with corns and calluses. No matter what your health situation, if corns and calluses are becoming a problem for you, simply schedule an appointment with our Carol Stream podiatrist as soon as possible and we will get you the treatment you need.
