- BLISTERS

- CALLUSES & CORNS

Blisters (Advice & Deflective padding)

 

What is it?

  • A fluid filled sac (bubble) in the dermo-epidermal (outer) layer of skin. 

 

Causes

  • Blisters are usually caused by:

  • Ill-fitting footwear (shoes that are too tight or too loose) can cause friction resulting in swelling of the skin (fluid build-up beneath the affected area). 

  • Standing or walking for prolonged hours.

  • Excessive moisture and friction.

Treatments

  • To reduce the possibility of more discomfort to the area, deflective padding , footwear and podiatric care would be recommended.

Calluses (Hard Skin) & Corns

What are they?

  • Calluses are hard skin that  are formed on the outer layers of the skin.

Causes

  • Calluses are due to the affected areas of the foot receiving high pressure loads (Compressional stress / GRF (Ground Reaction Forces).

  • Once more callus forms over prior callus due to compressional and shearing stresses.  This forces the calluses to fuse tightly forcing  it deeper into the skin which is recognised as a corn.

Types of corns:

  • There are several types of corns (Hard corn; soft corn; seed corn; fibrous corn; neurovascular corn; Durlacher’s corn and subungual corns).

Treatments

 

  • Callus & corn treatment at 'Simply Podiatry Limited' is based upon debridement of calluses, enucleation or corns and sanding the area down to a smooth finish.
