Conditions & Ailments: Corns and Calluses

Corns And Calluses

On the NHS Choices website, corns and calluses are described as “areas of hard, thickened skin that develop when the skin is exposed to excessive pressure or friction.” As sufferers will know, they commonly occur on the feet and can cause pain and discomfort when you walk.

If you suffer from corns & calluses, HappyFeet Insoles can help, read on to find out more or buy online now:

Corns (Clavus, Heloma)

Whilst corns can develop anywhere, in most instances they form on the tops and sides of your toes and on the soles of your feet. Easily recognisable, they are small circles of hard, thick skin that can often be painful.

If you have bony feet, you are more likley to suffer from corns due to the lack of natural padding, however they can also be caused by ill fitting footwear and by badly designed footwear that places undue pressure on the susceptible areas of your feet.

Calluses (Tyloma)

Larger than corns and usually slightly yellow in colour, calluses can often form around your heel or under the skin on the ball of your foot.

If you wear high heels on a regular basis, the ball of your foot will take most of your weight when you walk and this often causes callus growth. Excessive pressure on bony areas of your foot, badly fitting shoes, dry skin and reduced fatty padding are also possible causes.

best insoles for corns and calluses

HappyFeet float your feet on top of a fluid bed of pharmaceutical-grade glycerin, somewhat like a “water bed” for your feet. When your feet float, rubbing is eliminated and there is no longer any friction between your sole and your shoes.

No irritation; no need for the protection of a callus. Over time existing calluses will simply disappear as your feet return to their natural healthy state that comes from restoring a natural healthy environment for them.

" “THANK YOU, you didn’t have to send the second pair, as you only took my word on them, my husband was thrilled with your service, you are a credit to the company. Have a good day” "

Patricia Freeth

" “I would like to say how fantastic your insoles are. For years I have danced Flamenco which really gives your feet a pounding. When I became a Diabetic my feet became so sensitive that I found it difficult to walk at times never mind dance This made me very sad as I have always loved my beautiful shoes and now I was unable to wear of them. My husband bought me a pair of your insoles at a County Fair last summer and I have worn them every day since even taking them on holiday to Barbados. My feet have so improved that last week I wore a pair of high heels for the first time in five years, which so improved my self confidence. I have high hopes of returning to flamenco.” "
