Check for Corns and Calluses

Check for Corns and Calluses (hardened skin).
Corns and calluses can be a problem. They cause pressure and can lead to ulceration. Never trim or cut a corn yourself. Do not use a corn pad, they burn the skin and you may develop an ulcer from this. Using a pumice stone can also be dangerous, as you cannot feel your feet. The only safe way to treat a corn or callus is to see a podiatrist.
