Cracks or fissures are an example of other frequent problems, where pain usually occurs and, in some cases, lead to an infection. Calluses are often associated with maceration caused by a certain type of footwear or incorrect bone formation. There is a natural thickening of the skin, which is a defense mechanism to prevent more serious injuries.

Here you can find various care suitable for the treatment of cracks and calluses.

They are usually problems that are aggravated during the summer, as the sweat on the skin can generate greater friction between the socks and the shoes.

 

How do corns arise?
Corns appear due to repeated friction in a certain region, leaving the skin thicker and more rigid. Calluses can appear in any region according to the agent responsible for contact and repeated pressure, such as the use of tight shoes that favor the appearance of callus on the feet. 
They can also arise by playing instruments, doing weight-lifting activities without gloves, or working on construction sites carrying weights.

How do cracks and cracks appear?
They appear when the skin of the feet is exposed to extreme weather conditions, aggressive therapies and aggressive agents - such as detergents. Cracks are also the result of severe dehydration associated with the pressure exerted on this area of ​​the foot. They can cause discomfort, pain and lead to infections.

Symptoms
Most of the time, cracks arise from very dry calluses and as a reaction to the conditions and aggressions that the foot is subjected to. When the sole of the foot and the heel do not have sufficient lubrication, calluses, cracks and skin tightening can form. Thus, we can list dry skin, cracks, calluses, pain and discomfort as main symptoms.

Treatment
To treat and prevent cracks or fissures, apply a moisturizing cream, wash your feet every day with neutral pH soap, wear cotton socks and comfortable shoes. If the cracks bleed, an antiseptic should be applied. If you are diabetic or cracks are accompanied by itching and peeling of the skin, you should consult your podiatrist.

 

Dr. Viviana Lima, from the Braga pedology clinic, provides some tips to avoid cracks and fissures:

  • Wear good quality shoes, flexible, large and adapted to your feet.
  • Also avoid pointed shoes or high heels.
  • Use specific insoles for your feet, made by your Podiatrist.
  • If you are diabetic, be very careful and consult a podiatrist regularly to avoid future problems.
  • Take extra precautions if you are elderly.
  • Apply moisturizers to the skin of your feet.
  • Avoid self-medication and always consult your podiatrist.
  • To prevent and treat this problem, it is convenient to use specific products for these situations, which hydrate and help repair cracks in the feet.

 

How to treat calluses at home?

The callus treatment can be done at home, through the adoption of some simple measures such as rubbing the callus with the pumice stone and avoid wearing tight shoes and socks, for example.

However, if you have diabetes or poor blood circulation, it is very important to consult a podiatrist before treating the callus at home, due to the risk of infection.

To treat calluses at home, the following ritual should be followed:

 

1. Dip the callus in warm water

The warm water softens the callus, making it easier to remove the thickened skin that forms the callus. In this way, you should fill a basin with warm water and immerse the body region with the callus, such as the foot or hand, for example, for about 10 to 15 minutes.

 

2. Rub the callus with the pumice stone

5 passos para eliminar calos em casa
After 10 or 15 minutes with the body region immersed in warm water, rub the callus with a pumice stone or sandpaper, if it is small, to remove the thick layer of skin that has formed.

You should not use a sharp object to rub the callus, as it can cut the skin and cause an infection.

 

3. Apply moisturizing cream to the region

After rubbing the callus with the pumice, apply a moisturizing cream on the body area with the callus to help keep the skin soft, in order to make the layer of skin over the callus less thick.

 

4. Put a band-aid on the callus

5 passos para eliminar calos em casa
Applying a pad-like callus band-aid, which can be purchased at pharmacies, or a gauze pad with an adhesive helps to protect the area where the callus developed, so as not to increase its size and thicken further the callus. In addition to band-aid, there are also remedies in the form of lotion, ointment or gel that have an exfoliating action and help in the removal of corns. Know what remedies you can use to get rid of the calluses.

The use of band-aids suitable for corns should be done with caution, as there are some that contain substances such as salicylic acid, which can irritate healthy skin and cause infections, especially in diabetics or people with poor blood circulation, for example.

 

5. Wear comfortable socks and shoes that do not tighten

5 passos para eliminar calos em casa
Comfortable socks and shoes should be worn that do not tighten until the callus disappears, as tight shoes and socks will thicken the skin, forming new calluses or increasing the size of already formed calluses.

It is not recommended to open a callus because of the risk of infection and bleeding, which is especially dangerous in case of diabetes. In addition, if the callus does not come out in about 1 week, it is recommended to consult a podiatrist or doctor to guide the best treatment, which may involve the use of topical remedies.

The feet of diabetics, the elderly and all patients on Hemodialysis are very sensitive and very easily subject to wounds and infections. These wounds and infections are very uncomfortable, dangerous and difficult to treat.

 

 

REGULAR CARE WITH SHOES AND FEET

Before putting on your shoes, inspect the interior with your hand, looking for foreign bodies (sand, stones).

Foot care

  1. Observe your feet daily: the plant, the heel and the spaces between the toes, to see if there are different colored areas, blisters, cracks, calluses, bumps If you can't do it, due to difficulty in position, use mirror. If you have difficulty seeing, ask someone else for help.
  2. Wash your feet every day, for two or three minutes (do not “soak” them), using neutral soap and warm water, always checking the water temperature. Dry them very well, particularly in the areas between the fingers. Apply a moisturizing cream on the plant and on the back (not between the fingers), massaging well.
  3. Use a cardboard file to wear the nails, moving it in a straight line from side to side.
  4. In summer, don't wear shoes without socks. Wear seamless cotton socks that do not tighten on your legs.
  5. Wear comfortable shoes, adapted to your foot, so that there are no tight areas where excessive pressure is exerted. Closed shoes protect your feet more from "knocks" or stones or sand.
  6. Before putting on your shoes, check with your hand that there is no object in them.
  7. Never walk barefoot.
  8. In the cold, do not heat your feet with cylinders or pointers. Wear wool socks
  9. Do not use calluses or similar products on corns. Regularly research the sensitivity of your feet.

Take care of your feet! Do not value them only when they are already injured or infected!

 

Care that diabetics should take with their feet.

People with diabetes, to avoid foot damage, need extra attention during the summer months. Due to the extreme heat, several problems can arise, such as swelling, dry feet, cracks, problems derived from the use of sandals, as well as the problems associated with walking barefoot - wounds, burns and blisters.

Here are some tips that can help you keep your feet happy and healthy this summer!

  1. Never walk barefoot on the beach, in the pool, in the dressing room, or indoors. This will help to avoid sharp objects, burns due to the floor or hot sand, abrasions of rough surfaces, anti-slip, and contact with viruses or bacteria - which can lead to fungal infections or other foot problems;
  2. Apply sunscreen to the top and bottom of the feet to protect from sunburn;
  3. If necessary, moisturize your feet, but do not apply the lotion between your fingers;
  4. Wear cotton socks;
  5. Elevate your feet whenever necessary. This can help to prevent circulation problems;
  6. Wear appropriate shoes for this time of year (if necessary, also use insoles suitable for your foot);
  7. Check your feet every day and if you notice anything out of the ordinary, contact your podiatrist immediately;
  8. Don't forget to keep your glucose levels at good levels (enjoy the good weather and also do some exercise).


The feet are the support base of the whole body and although their skin is thicker and more resistant, they suffer a natural daily wear and are subject to numerous aggressions. During the summer, the feet come into direct contact with numerous surfaces and are more exposed, requiring special care.

 

Here are 8 tips on how to take care of your feet in the summer.

Comfortable footwear - The type of footwear is essential to keep your feet healthy. Shoes should be as comfortable as possible, and they should make sure they are clean. Tight and uncomfortable shoes can cause deformations resulting from direct friction with the skin, such as calluses on the soles of the feet and over the toes.
Wash your feet properly - Washing your feet properly should be a concern. In summer, the feet are in greater contact with the ground. To ensure that they are well cleaned, you can use a washing gel suitable for feet and a brush to remove all dirt and dead cells. Then, they should be well dried with a towel, especiall
y between the fingers, to ensure that this area is free of moisture. Powder or spray antiperspirants can be used
