Callus

A callus is a toughened area of skin which has become relatively thick and hard in response to repeated friction, pressure, or other irritation. Rubbing that is too frequent or forceful will cause blisters rather than allow calluses to form. Since repeated contact is required, calluses are most often found on feet because of frequent walking. Calluses are generally not harmful, but may sometimes lead to other problems, such as skin ulceration or infection.more information in these products please contact us by clicking the button below.

Corns

When a callus develops a mass of dead cells in its center, it becomes a corn. Corns generally occur on the toes and balls of the feet. Calluses occur on the feet, hands, and any other part of the skin where friction is present. Corns, although very small, can be very painful. Removal of a corn should be performed by a professional in order to reduce the risk of infection and injury to the foot.

Fungus

No one knows where a specific person picks up the fungus that leads to fungal nails, as it is everywhere! However, since the fungus does thrive in warm, moist areas (like sweaty feet) there are certain areas one should avoid or use with caution. Shower floors, locker rooms, and swimming pools are the most commonly suspected sources. Nail polish and acrylic nails also make nails less “breathable” and make the nail more susceptible to fungal infection. Fungi are everywhere – in the air, in the dust, and the soil! Avoiding tight, non-breathing shoes and steering clear of athletic floors may be the best prevention available. Daily washing of the feet and drying between the toes can also help to prevent nail fungus.
Once you have contracted a fungal infection on any of your toenails, it can be very difficult to get rid of and it also makes taking care of your toenails very difficult. I can assist you in reducing nail fungus as well as provide helpful tips to treat it.
