Understanding Corn and Callus Removal in Indooroopilly
Corns and calluses can be more than just a cosmetic concern; they often lead to foot and heel pain, impacting your daily activities. Our treatment process in Indooroopilly is designed to not only remove these troublesome skin formations but also address the underlying causes to prevent recurrence.
- Gentle corn and callus removal: We use gentle techniques to remove corns and calluses, ensuring minimal discomfort during the process.
- Personalised care plans: Our experienced team creates personalised foot care plans tailored to your needs, ensuring effective and targeted removal.
- Preventing recurrence: Beyond removal, we focus on preventing corns and calluses from returning. We offer advice on footwear choices and daily practices to keep your feet healthy.
What Are Corns and Calluses on Your Feet?
What Is a Callus?
A callus is a thickened area of skin that forms in response to repeated friction or pressure. It’s the body’s way of protecting the skin from irritation. Commonly found on the soles of feet or palms of hands, calluses can sometimes become painful if not addressed.
- Repeated friction or pressure on the skin
- Wearing ill-fitting shoes
- Walking barefoot on hard surfaces
- Using tools that cause constant rubbing against the same region of skin
What Is a Corn?
Corns are also hardened layers of skin. However, they are different from calluses in their shape and location. Corns are usually smaller when compared to calluses, and corns have a hard centre covered by inflamed skin. They usually develop on or between your toes, which can cause discomfort or difficulty walking without pain.
- Pressure and friction, but have specific triggers
- Tight or narrow footwear
- Foot deformities
- Activities that put too much pressure on certain areas of the feet, like wearing high heels or playing high-impact sports
Recognising these causes can help in making lifestyle adjustments to relieve foot pain and prevent corns from returning. Notably, taking care of corns and calluses is also essential for diabetic foot care, as these growths can often cause continual infections or form ulcers in patients with diabetes.

Treatments for Corns and Calluses
Something as small as light ankle pain could turn into something a lot worse down the road. It’s best to go for a biomechanical assessment if you’re feeling any sort of lower limb discomfort.
|If the issue persists, seek professional assistance from a podiatrist. We can offer expert advice and can perform pain-free removal procedures.
|Consider using orthotic inserts (or custom-made insoles) to alleviate pressure on certain parts of your feet. These can prevent pain while providing additional support and comfort.
|Keep your feet hydrated by regularly applying moisturiser. This helps soften the skin, reducing the chances of calluses forming.
|Gently use a pumice stone to smooth away rough skin. This simple tool can be effective in managing both corns and calluses.
|Wear comfortable shoes
|Choose footwear that fits well and provides good support. Avoid tight or narrow shoes, especially those that put pressure on painful areas of your feet.
