Dr Oz: Calluses & Corns: Epsom Salt Baths & Lactic Acid Moisturizers

Dr Oz: Corns & Calluses

Dr Oz had four Podiatrists examine everyone’s feet in his audience to find the women with the worst Corns and Calluses.  Knowing whether you have a Corn or a Callus on your foot can help you figure out the best way to treat them and prevent them.  Here is what Doctor Oz said about the treatment and prevention of both Corns and Calluses:

Dr Oz: Calluses vs Corns

First, Dr Oz said that you must understand that both Corns and Calluses are a thickened layer of protective skin that forms to protect your foot from Dr Oz Callusespressure and friction.  A callus is when you get this thickened skin on the bottom of your foot, whereas a Corn is something that you get on the top of your feet – especially on the top of your toes.

    I have noticed that exercising the toes will get rid of calluses. You need to try to pick up a pencil with your toes and drop it-continue doing that and in a few days the calluses will come off by themselves.

    I have had a calluse on my big toe since 1998, I walk around 4 miles a day, I have tried soaking my foot and using the pumice stone and it still won’t go away and now I’m getting another one on the crease on the bone just before the arch. I do where my hiking boots and my heels alot. I just don’t know what to do with this problem anymore. Where do I buy the Lactic Acid and Alpha Hydroxy?

    AHA is a common ingredient in exfoliating face creams. If you’re using it on your feet, I’d look for cheaper brands.
