The Epidermis, a Fragile Environment
During general foot care we can detect foot disease or treat corns, calluses, plantar warts and other foot conditions. Your podiatrist at Clinique Podiatrique Rive-Sud can also give you advice on prevention and treatment of calluses. If you are concerned about the health of your feet, call us today for foot care in Brossard.
Corns and Calluses
A thickening of the epidermis can occur at points of friction or pressure and become quite painful. It is not recommended to try to remove the calluses yourself with a sharp instrument as this can make the situation worse. The podiatrist will safely remove corns and calluses using sophisticated and sterile instruments.
Plantar warts are actually a skin lesion caused by a virus (HPV), and can be rather uncomfortable. The warts appear on the skin following exposure to the virus. Plantar warts are contagious and can multiply, which is why they should be treated as quickly as possible. A podiatrist will recommend the most effective treatment for you and give you prevention advice.
