Corns, Calluses & Warts on Feet

Tender skin lumps on the feet are usually caused by calluses, corns, or warts. Calluses and corns are areas of skin that has thickened, due to constant pressure, while warts are viral infections.

CALLUSES

WHAT IS A CALLUS?

It is simply a thickening of skin caused by some form of repeated and friction. It is usually not painful but can be uncomfortable. It is common on the sole of the foot over the base of the toes. A callus can be found on any part of the body, especially the hands or the knees. When a callus is pared, normal skin is found underneath.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR CALLUSES?

  • No treatment is necessary if it is painless
  • Proper footwear is necessary to prevent calluses. Choose shoes that are wide enough and have cushioned pads over the balls of the feet
  • Paring with a scalpel blade by your doctor gives a relief
  • Filing with callus files or a pumice stone wears away the callus. Soften it by soaking it in the water before peeling the skin

CORNS

WHAT IS A CORN?

A corn is a small tender raised lump that is round and has a hard centre. Corns are usually formed over the toes and over the joints, between the toes and on the outside of the little toe. Sometimes they can be very painful. Paring reveals a white circular mass of old skin.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR CORNS?

  • The treatment is similar to that for a callus
  • The corn can be softened with a chemical (salicylic acid) in commercial corn removers and then pared or peeled
  • Remove the source of friction if possible. Wear wide shoes- do not wear poor-fitting shoes. New shoes can be a cause, but your feet may adjust with stretching of the shoes.
  • For soft corns between the toes (usually the last toe-web), keep the toe-webs separated with lamb’s wool at all times and dust with a foot powder

WARTS

WHAT IS A PLANTAR WART?

A plantar wart is a wart that has grown on the sole of the foot and then gets pressed into it by pressure. It feels like a stone in the shoe and can be quite painful. It is caused by a viral infection and is more common in children and young people, who may pick the virus up from public showers. When it is pared, small bleeding points are exposed. Plantar warts are more difficult to treat that corns and calluses.

WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR WARTS?

Professional help is usually needed to treat these warts. Many methods can be used, such as freezing with liquid nitrogen, application of chemicals or surgical removal. Special cushions or pads should be worn inside the shoes to relieve pressure.

Daily bread - Can any human body handle gluten? Dr. Rodney Ford | TEDxTauranga

Gluten – friend or foe?
This was the talk that got the standing ovation and changed everyone’s eating habits for the rest of evening. Over the course of 15 minutes Dr. Rodney Ford, MB. BS. MD. FRACP, and a pioneer in the field of paediatric food allergies, convinced an audience of 500 that nobody is equipped to digest gluten. How did he do it? By using lego! Dr. Ford showed us the indigestible gluten protein is chased by the antibodies that our systems create to combat the gluten. Based on decades of research, Dr. Ford believes that abundant health can be achieved by anyone who eats the appropriate foods.

Dr Rodney Ford, MB. BS. MD. FRACP, is a paediatrician and former Associate Professor in the Department of Paediatrics at Christchurch Clinical School. He is a specialist in food allergy and gastroenterology at the 'The Children's Clinic and Allergy Centre', Christchurch, New Zealand. Rodney's philosophy is “diet: not drugs” as he has seen too many people given medications for symptoms without first considering the possibility of food allergy or food intolerance. Rodney has been investigating adverse reactions to gluten for over 20 years and these illnesses have now been labelled “Gluten-related disorders” or Gluten Syndrome, with world-wide evidence accumulating that gluten may not be healthy for us all. Dr. Ford's current goal is to bring communities up-to-date about the harmful effects of gluten.
