Rod calluses relate to those blisters that appear on the feet of feet for a long amount of time. To the touch, they resemble dense solid formations that do not have cavities within themselves. Ecology and, of course, inconvenient or low-quality footwear play a major role in their education, as a result of which mechanical friction occurs that affects the skin of the feet, as well as shoes with heels and excess weight.
A rather unaesthetic appearance of corns with a core complements the physical pain felt when walking. Both men and women are affected by this pathology; however, the representatives of the weaker sex, by virtue of their special control over appearance, are much more likely than men to pay attention to this problem and produce manipulations for its treatment.
Corns with a core develop after the process of formation of ordinary corns, which are in essence a physical disorder of the skin as a result of an infectious or fungal infection. Corns with a stem are difficult to treat.
Dry corns with stem
Another kind of corns - dry corns with a core (or as they are also called - corns with a core). They are not only an aesthetic and cosmetic defect, but also if they reach a large size, they interfere with performing simple actions and movements, bringing pain to the patient.
In addition, dry corns with a rod can periodically become inflamed. That is why dry corns with a rod require immediate treatment.
Removal of corns with plaster
If you approach the treatment of corns correctly, then you can achieve good results without causing yourself absolutely no pain. For any reason for the onset of corns (whether the corn has been acquired infectiously or mechanically), their treatment is of the same type, with the use of medications and subsequent mechanical removal of the neoplasm.
Most pharmacies have special gels, creams, and patches to remove corns. You can purchase the patch "Salipod"and stick it on the "hat" corn. From above, to fix it, you need to stick a regular adhesive plaster. “Salipod” will soften the corn and after 2-3 days it will be possible to remove it and try to remove the corn independently by mechanical means.
Manipulation to remove the corns is best done by placing your foot in a warm bath. With an ideal outcome, the cap of the corn will come out painlessly and easily, perhaps even with a rod, after which a small hollow will remain in the skin. If the case is running, then in this way you can remove only the cap of the corn, and removing the rod will cause unpleasant and painful sensations.
The rod can be removed in this way by repeating the procedure with gluing "Salipoda" several times. The recess formed in the skin after the removal of the rod is better glued with adhesive tape or iodine, after a few days it will disappear.
Treatment of corn with a rod at home
- At home, you can make a special hot bath with soapy water and soda (1 tablespoon of soda per 1 liter of water). After this procedure, the problem areas of the skin should be treated with natural pumice stone and apply a thick layer of nourishing cream on top. Such procedures should be performed 8-10.
- Even at home, you can remove corns with a rod with vinegar. A few drops of essence should be dropped on the area of the corn and glue on top with an ordinary plaster. Every 3-4 hours, these manipulations must be repeated.
- Another remedy for removing corns is compresses from the pulp or juice of aloe, onion peel, onion juice, flaxseed or prune - but such products do not always give a positive effect.
- However, trying to remove the callus yourself may cause injury to deeper layers of the skin and infection. Therefore, the best method of removing corns with a rod is a trip to a dermatologist or cosmetologist. In a specially equipped room and with the help of the necessary tools, a specialist can easily remove the callus and consult you about further treatment and prevention of corns.
Treatment of corns brings success, but still it is better to be more attentive to your feet. Observe simple rules is not difficult, especially since they do not require the expenditure of great effort. If you inadvertently walked barefoot, pricked, hurt yourself, or brought into the skin of any object, try to remove it immediately. This way you can avoid the first reason for the formation of corns with a core. But you can avoid infection when wearing appropriate quality shoes.
