Calluses are produced as a result of pressure. For many people calluses are uncomfortable and simply using a file or pumice stone is not enough. A Podiatrist can comfortably reduce the calluses. Being examined by a Podiatrist can determine whether the calluses are a result of a structural problem in the foot and if a custom orthotic is required to redistribute the weight evenly throughout the foot. Surgical treatments may be available in some cases to correct the problem. A Podiatrist can assess the problem and discuss all treatment options.
