Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. They most often develop on the feet and toes or hands and fingers. Corns and calluses can be unsightly.

What can i use to remove callus on my big toe?


First of all you should see a doctor: Bodyparts (and your skin) turning black is never something to be taken lightly.

Tip

Finding shoes for ageing feet


Number of tips for finding shoes for ageing feet: 1. Ensure the toes don't touch the end of the shoe, allow a 1cm gap from the longest toe. 2.Shoes should not need "breaking in" they should fit comfortably from the start. 3. Ensure the toes don't touch the end of the shoe, allow a 1cm gap from the longest toe. 4.Ensure the toes don't touch the end of the shoe, allow a 1cm gap from the longest toe. 5.Ensure shoes are wide and deep enough to prevent heel slip. 6.Lace up, buckles or Velcro should hold the heel in place Velcro straps can be easier for arthritic hands.7. Slip on shoes can encourage the toes to 'claw' at the shoe to keep it on leading to discomfort, corns and calluses.

I am a 55 year old former teacher. I retired end of 2016. Being part of management as well as a math educator I wore high to medium heels all the time. Being retired now I wear more flatter hels


Calluses and corns may go away by themselves eventually, once the irritation is consistently avoided. They may also be dissolved with keratolytic agents containing salicylic acid, sanded down with a pumice stone or filed down with a callus shaver, or pared down by a professional such as a podiatrist or a foot health practitioner.[4]

Is there any treatment for my calluses?


  • Salicylic acid. Additionally, your doctor may apply a patch containing 40 percent salicylic acid (Curad Mediplast, Dr. Scholl's Corn Removers, others), which is available without a prescription. He or she will let you know how often you need to replace this patch, and may recommend that you use a pumice stone or a metal nail file to smooth away the dead skin before applying a new patch. Salicylic acid is also available in a topical form by prescription for large areas.
  • Antibiotic medication. Your doctor may also suggest applying an antibiotic ointment to reduce the risk of infection.
  • Shoe inserts. If you have an underlying foot deformity, your doctor may prescribe custom-made padded shoe inserts (orthotics) to prevent recurring corns or calluses.
  • Surgery. In rare instances, your doctor may recommend surgery to correct the alignment of the bone causing the friction.

How can I treat corn & callus?


If you're healthy, you need treatment for corns and calluses only if they cause discomfort. For most people, simply eliminating the source of friction or pressure makes corns and calluses disappear.

What is the best recipe for cooking corn


There are literally thousands of recipes for cooking corn on the internet. Here is just one of them, if this is not to your liking chose from the wide choice by just Googling for Corn recipes.

Corn on the cob - grilled with Chili and Basil Butter

4 large ears of corn on the cob

Chili and basil butter

125 gr butter
1 large chili
5 large basil leaves
1 clove garlic - crushed
salt/pepper

Peel back the husks from the corn, leaving them attached at the base. Remove silky hair from corn and discard. Fold husks back over corn and tie with a piece of string to keep closed. Some people say you must soak the corn in water for a couple of hours..well, I did not and I think the result was still perfect. Heat your grill, BBQ or griddle panir?t=widgetsamazon-20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=b0000936k2 until hot and place the corn on the grill.ir?t=widgetsamazon-20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=b00004w499

In a food processorir?t=widgetsamazon-20&l=btl&camp=213689&creative=392969&o=1&a=b0000645ym, add all the ingredients for the butter and pulse until well blended. Use for basting the corn while grilling.

Turn the corn frequently while grilling, all the time basting the corn. Serve with more of that delicious butter as a side dish to a BBQ or as a wholesome vegetarian supper!
