Calluses and Corns

Skin Care for Feet in Shirley

A callus, or tyloma, on the foot is caused from repeated pressure and friction, leading to the build up of thickened skin. The callus, which be may hard, dry or cracked, acts to protect the area underneath it.

A corn is similar to a callus, but is smaller and appears on toes rather than on the sole of the foot.

Diagnosis

A callus or corn is typically diagnosed upon examination.

For more information about Calluses and Corns or to schedule a consult with Dr. Taormino, call our Ronkonkoma, NY office at Ronkonkoma Office Phone Number 631-467-2813 or our Shirley, NY office at Shirley Office Phone Number 631-281-6882; you may also use our Appointment Request form.

Treatment

Your podiatrist can recommend simple over-the-counter treatments such as pads or pumice to decrease the calluses or corn. In severe cases calluses may require regular shaving to keep them from becoming too large.

Without Treatment

While treatment for calluses and corns is not always necessary, it may provide you with more comfort. Larger calluses can cause significant pain. In some patients, especially when they become cracked, calluses can lead to wounds that can lead to serious problems, especially in people with diabetes.

Finally a foot doctor I feel obligated to recommend. He took time to ask about my foot problems. He was understanding, GENTLE, and brought me instant and lasting relief. My feet thank him and they'll be back to see him again.

Patient Testimonial by Kathleen D

My daughter and I came in to see Dr. T for various issues that were addressed with the utmost professionalism and complete thoroughness. First of all, the staff was friendly and informative, unlike many medical offices these days. Additionally, Dr. T was extremely patient with our treatment and took painstaking time to ensure that we understood our diagnoses and treatment plans. Dr. T was very receptive to our questions and answered them all directly and honestly. We are very content with our visits to this office and will definitely return for our follow-up appointments.

Patient Testimonial by Barbara D

A pleasant experience from the time I called for an appointment. Friendly welcome when I arrived and throughout the appointment. Dr. Taormino was as friendly as I remembered. I saw the doctor at his former location thirteen years ago and I was as satisfied then and I was during my latest visit. I was treated for a callous on the bottom of my foot and it was taken are of both efficiently and with no discomfort.
