Heel Calluses

What are Heel Calluses?



Repeated pressure and friction caused by standing, walking and dancing in ill-fitting shoes can cause heel calluses to form on the foot. Calluses are thickened areas of dead skin that build up to protect the heels against further wear and tear. Stilettos and fashionable footwear may look attractive, but the repeated pressure and friction caused by standing, walking and dancing in ill-fitting shoes can cause heel calluses to form on the foot.


Treatments 

Treatments include prevention like proper shoes, using inserts and/or ensuring the shoes worn have thick cushion to protect the feet. Soaking and buffing the areas afflicted, exfoliating, and moisturizing cream can be extremely helpful to treat this condition. Always check with your dermatologist.
