Health Tip: Help Prevent Corns and Calluses

What you can do

(HealthDay News) -- 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.
