Q
Why do my corns and calluses keep coming back?

A

Corns and calluses are areas of thickened skin on your toes and the bottom of your feet that cannot be ignored. Usually, these are areas of friction caused by bony abnormalities in your feet rubbing up against a shoe or the ground when you walk.  At Prairie Path Foot and Ankle, we find ways to treat these areas of hardened skin and work with you to prevent them from coming back as frequently, but very often unless you address the underlying cause, they will keep coming back.  With a thorough evaluation by our doctors, we can determine what treatment is right for you, which may include shoe gear changes, padding and accommodating options, or possibly even surgical correction.
