The types of shoes you wear as well as the activities that you regularly participate in or complete will definitely have an effect on your feet. In some cases, friction and pressure can cause the development of corns and calluses, which can become painful and uncomfortable. With the help of our foot doctor in Bayside, Gary B. Feldman, DPM, you can get the professional care that you deserve in order to alleviate these issues or eliminate them entirely.
For the most part, corns and calluses develop when certain areas of your feet come into contact with shoes or other items on a regular basis, and are generally the results of excess friction, stress, and strain. There is a slight difference between corns and calluses. Both are thick and hard and areas of skin, but the differing name is generally referred to different areas where these hard in the areas of skin are found. A corn is generally the result of a more direct kind of pressure and is found on the tops or sides of the foot or toes. Calluses on the other hand are often found on the bottoms of your feet, and they may also be found on your hands as well. In either case, our foot doctor in Bayside Gary B. Feldman, DPM is here to identify the severity of your corns and calluses and provide you with the appropriate treatment.
