Health Tip: Help Prevent Corns and Calluses
-- Corns and calluses can be very uncomfortable, but the right shoes often can prevent them from forming.
Consider these suggestions from the American Podiatric Medical Association:
- Make sure you only wear shoes that fit properly.
- Talk to your podiatrist if you have a foot deformity or problem that requires special shoes.
- Wear gel pad inserts inside your shoes to ease pressure points. Ask your podiatrist about how to place them.
