  • Should I use a corn and callus remover?

    Callus and corns on footThere are various treatment methods you might consider using when you have a corn or callus, but it is always best to utilize ones recommended by medical professionals. Over-the-counter products provide a great illustration of this. An over-the-counter corn or callus remover may do more harm than good due to the acids that many of them use.

    Additionally, corn and callus removers can potentially be dangerous for patients who have diabetes. If you are a diabetic, always seek professional care for any medical issue. Minor issues can escalate into major problems if handled incorrectly.
