Calluses, like corns, are rough patches of skin but are usually wider and located on the sole of your foot.
Keep reading this section if you want to learn how to treat calluses with help from Compeed®.
What is a callus?
Calluses are patches of hardened yellow skin, most often found on the heel or the ball of the foot or on the palm of the hand. Calluses are generally larger than corns and less well defined.
What causes a callus?
Repeated rubbing, pressure and weight cause calluses, as is the case when wearing high heels which shifts the full body weight onto the ball of the foot.
How to treat a callus?
Start by relieving and moisturising the callused skin. Try COMPEED® Callus Plasters to cushion against pressure, moisturise and provide instant pain relief.
How to prevent calluses?
To prevent a callus from forming, try moisturising with a foot cream and exfoliating; this can remove old skin cells before they harden.
It is also a good idea to protect your feet against rubbing and friction, especially if you’re going to wear heels that put extra weight on the ball of your foot.
