Foot Calluses Should be Trimmed to Skin Surface Level: NY Podiatrist


 


According to Mika Hayashi, DPM, a New York-based podiatrist, calluses in healthy individuals can protect an area of the foot from excessive pressure; but if they protrude too much, they can be uncomfortable. “It can feel as if you’re walking on spike shoes used for soccer,” she said.

The remedy? Dr. Hayashi suggests calluses be trimmed back to the skin surface level, thereby restoring the normal contact area between the foot and the ground and decreasing pressure.
