Corns & Calluses

What is it?

Corns & calluses are your body’s response to friction. This can be friction from your shoes rubbing your toes (corns) or your foot rubbing the ground or the bottom of your shoe (calluses). In any case corns and calluses are a thickening of the skin in response to this friction.

Symptoms:

  • The thickened areas of skin can be painful with shoe pressure or with walking
  • As the lesion progresses it may destroy healthy tissue
  • Redness and swelling can often be seen around these areas of irritation

Cincinnati Podiatrist Callus & Corn Treatment:

  • A thorough exam and x-rays will help to determine the cause of your lesion
  • Non-medicated padding may offer relief
  • Orthotics can reduce friction when walking to relieve pain
  • Shoes with more toe space can help relieve pressure
  • We can safely remove lesions in the office
  • Surgery can be done as a last option to correct the alignment of bone and tendon

After experiencing foot pain for way too long, I set up an appointment with Dr. Titko. Dr. Titko immediately identified what was causing the pain. She took care of an issue I was having to ease the pain, took x-rays and will have a treatment plan by my next visit. I truly appreciate her approach and respect for my time. Dr. Titko was professional and focused but, also very personable with a great sense of humor which made for a pleasant experience despite why I was there! Her staff was friendly and efficient getting me back right on time and out quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Titko to anyone experiencing similar issues.
