Corns and callouses are areas of thickened skin that from when excessive pressure or friction is applied to the foot. When they develop on the feet, they can cause pain and discomfort when you walk or wear poor-fitting shoes. Those with bony feet are more likely to develop corns, as the feet lack natural cushioning that would prevent excessive friction. At our Toronto foot clinic, we will work with you to manage your corns and callouses, from smoothing them to suggesting the best shoes for your to wear, or in more serious cases, removal.- Medical care and supervision of fungus nails and skin disorders.Toe nail fungus characteristically causes nails to thicken and yellow, and sometimes, become brittle. Toronto podiatrist Chris Hastings will assess the fungus, and possibly prescribe oral or topical fungus, a washing routine, and in some cases, surgical treatment. Skin disorders, such as blisters, athlete’s foot, cracked heels, warts and psoriasis are some of the common aliments we see in our downtown Toronto foot clinic. They often go untreated as they are typically covered by socks or shoes, but if you suspect you’re suffering from one of these disorders, we recommend visiting our clinic for assessment and management. Leaving a foot skin disorder untreated can result in pain, infection and even more serious disease.
