Trim Excess Skin
Doctors can trim excess skin that develops with a callus or corn. This hard, dead skin can be removed to reveal softer, healthier skin layers. It is important for patients to see a doctor to have this completed, as infection is a risk associated with removing skin layers. A doctor will use a scalpel or other shearing device to slowly remove layers of skin. Sometimes a local anesthetic is used so patients remain comfortable during the procedure. This can provide permanent relief from calluses and corns only if the cause of them is eliminated. It will be a temporary fix if a condition like bone deformities are causing the calluses and corns.
