How to prevent the appearance of corns?

To pre­vent cal­lus­es on your feet, first of all, you should pay atten­tion to the shoes you wear, they should be com­fort­able, accord­ing to the size of your feet. Pay atten­tion that the heel of shoes or boots is not very hard, oth­er­wise after a few hours you risk get­ting a painful wet cal­lus. Be sure to keep your feet from sweat­ing. Shoes should only be worn on washed feet, socks should also always be clean. When buy­ing socks and tights, give pref­er­ence to prod­ucts made from nat­ur­al fab­rics. If you have a long walk, it is bet­ter to take the patch with you, so that at the first feel­ing of dis­com­fort you will help your­self. If you bought new shoes, then it is worth stick­ing a plas­ter on the place where you will feel a strong sen­sa­tion of fric­tion before the cal­lus appears.

How to treat?

If you notice a soft cal­lus that has not yet had time to fill up with liq­uid, there are sev­er­al effec­tive and reli­able ways to deal with the prob­lem. Aloe is con­sid­ered a uni­ver­sal heal­er. The plant has a wound heal­ing and anti­sep­tic effect. Cut the stem in half, apply the pulp to the wound, fix with a ban­dage or plas­ter. Leave for a few hours.

Salt solu­tion will also help to cope with corns. To pre­pare a solu­tion per liter of warm water, you need to add a table­spoon of salt. Hold the affect­ed feet in such a bath for a few min­utes. A solu­tion of potas­si­um per­man­ganate is also effec­tive, it must be dilut­ed to a light pink col­or. This pro­ce­dure is sim­i­lar to a saline bath.

If a wound appears after a burst bub­ble, it must be care­ful­ly treat­ed with a dis­in­fec­tant, or bet­ter, rinsed with per­ox­ide. The affect­ed area can also be treat­ed with a decoc­tion of oak bark or plan­tain tinc­ture. In order for the wound to heal faster, it is not cov­ered with a plas­ter, but left open. In order for the corn to heal faster, it is rec­om­mend­ed to change shoes, elim­i­nat­ing fur­ther fric­tion.
