Diabetic Foot Care Step 5:
Smooth Corns And
What is the best way to smooth corns and calluses?
- After bathing or showering, use a pumice stone to smooth corns and calluses. A pumice stone is a type of rock used to smooth the skin. After showering or bathing, your skin will be softer so it will be easier to do. Make sure to rub gently, and ONLY in one direction to avoid tearing your skin.
- Do not cut corns and calluses. That means if you were thinking of using a razor blade, corn plaster, or liquid corn and callus removers… forget about it. Or as they say in New York “fuggaddaboudit”.
- If you have trouble with corns and calluses, by all means check with your doctor and/or podiatrist (foot care doctor).
Remember, there is no need to cause sores that can become infected. Use great care and your feet will stay healthy, giving you a far better quality of life.
