5 ways Coolum Podiatry Solutions can rid of your feet corn problems
Podiatry is a branch of medicine responsible for dealing with corns that form as a result of pressure points on the foot, ankle and the lower extremity parts. If you’re thinking that corns only develop in old age, then you’re so wrong and it is something that you need to worry about.
Coolum Podiatry Solutions who service Sunshine Beach Sunshine Coast, offers many services including the treatment of corns through different ways. Corns are a skin condition that erupts due to excessive wearing of ill-fitting footwear (especially heels) that causes an accumulation of hard, thick patches of dry skin. (We also service people in Castaways and Marcus Beach.) Dr. Luke Navin (B. Pod, M.A. Pod.A, University of Newcastle) our resident Podiatrist who has extensive experience in Podiatry, suggests different ways corn can be prevented or treated:
Foot Skin Care at Sunshine Coast Podiatry Solutions
1) Feet Skin
Our incredible care for the skin on the foot itself, can work as a possible preventive measure against corns. This should help with the cases that are especially used to the re-occurrence of this condition. Dr. Navin will take great of patient’s skin on the foot. He can provide different types of assessments including Paediatric assessments reserved for the kids.
Dr. Navin can prescribe the patients with antibiotics if the condition is affecting the patient on a medium scale. However, bacteria in corns can develop resistance overtime against the effectiveness of antibiotics that are trying to target it. They generally do clear up corns in its initial phase but to clear pus out of it, an incision must be done at our clinic on the Sunshine Coast. If you feel that you have corn and it’s in its initial phases, then contact us straight away!
3) Genuine Moisturising Cream:
Upon recommendation by the doctor, moisturising creams can help with the softening of skin and the removal of dry skin in your feet. After the application of cream, the foot should be covered with a plastic bag or a sock (as instructed by a doctor) for a whole night. This should also remove the corn if the condition was on the medium scale.
4) Wearing Proper Size:
Sometimes not wearing the right size can lead to the condition of corn, which can be unbearable for the person affected. Dr. Navin suggests one should have the right size of footwear so that the condition of corn can be prevented. Most of the times people who develop corns at a younger age wear shoes that are not the appropriate size.
5) Foot abnormalities:
Abnormalities in the foot or hip structure can lead to the corn condition, so correcting these abnormalities can prevent the condition from reoccurring. Dr. Navin can help with this kind of surgeries with minimal incision and general anesthesia to make it virtually painless.
