Home Treatment For Calluses & Corns
Posted By Tipnut On December 12, 2007 @ 6:54 am In Wellness | 1 Comment
Calluses are a buildup of rough, thick patches of skin on your feet (and sometimes hands).
Corns are similar, yet the buildup is more concentrated in one area and can be deep at their core. They can be soft or hard, depending on what area of the body they’re on. For example, if one is between your toes, chances are it’s soft because the moisture keeps it so.
If you spend a lot of time standing each day or your feet experience regular pressure and rubbing, they can develop more easily – especially as you grow older.
Some like to take care of them by clipping them off with toenail clippers or small razors. Please don’t, it’s too easy to give yourself an infection since the tools aren’t sterilized or you can nip yourself too deeply.
Here’s a step-by-step remedy to get things back into shape.
1/2 cup Baking Soda
1/2 cup Kosher salt
Careful: If you have diabetes, it’s always recommended to consult your doctor first before doing any type of foot care regimen.
