The thickened skin can easily be debrided and trimmed away to remove any of the build up of skin and give the patient some temporary relief from pain. However, addressing the pressure areas and offloading the pressure areas is essential to help slow down any of the re-growth of the thickened hard skin.
Some topical medication can be applied to slow down the accumulation of these calluses. We would be happy to talk to you about this.
