Tight, ill-fitting shoes are not only uncomfortable, but can also cause painful sores to form on the surface of your feet. At the Davisville Foot Clinic, we provide effective treatments for corns and calluses in Toronto. These abrasions are the result of dead skin buildup in areas where your feet rub against the inside of your shoes. We will discuss several treatment options, including over-the-counter medications, and try to address the underlying issues.
To prevent corns and calluses from forming on your toes, you can:
Wear shoes that have been properly measured to fit your feet
Avoid wearing high heels or shoes with pointed tips
Always wear socks that will shield your toes from rubbing against the tops of your shoes
Replace the soles of your shoes regularly to prevent increased shock when walking
