Callus is not the same as a blister on the leg, although sometimes both phenomena leave almost the same visual impression.
The main difference between them is that the blister only thickening of the skin, while Callus except thickening has its root (small dots in the center of callus).
Therefore, it is much more difficult to remove than corn because it is necessary to extract and its root.
Until the location of the root is in the foot, callus and corn are still there.
For the same reason, callus and corns know to cause severe pain and discomfort generally higher.
On the other hand, corns and calluses have the same cause of.
They appear as a reaction to the natural defense mechanism to protect the skin from pressure and friction.
Thus, factors that may contribute to the development of corns and calluses are:
– Inadequate and uncomfortable shoes (tight or too big)
– High heels that made an attack from the front part of the foot
– Inadequate socks
– Abnormalities of the foot (such as, for example, bunions)
– Abnormal walk
– Flat feet
Anyone who has had these problems knows that the fight against callus or corns is a tough job, especially if it’s been a long time since its inception.
There are various ways to scrape the thickened skin, however, it is not even half the job.
The final success is achieved only if we know the secret of how to uproot the root of callus or corn?
When someone mentions a secret, thought to be as painless as possible to uproot the root of corns, because that really knows how much it hurts.
The pain stops many people in this process so that the corn minds that they give you any trouble for years.
Callus is reaction of our body defense mechanism
Natural remedies for callus and corns can be divided into those that allow partial removal of callus and corns, which means almost complete removal of the thickened skin and those with which it can be released from callus and root.
So let’s start:
Clean (fresh) propolis
Located in the solid state and can be purchased from beekeepers.
Take a small piece of pure propolis heat up so much to be softer.
Then stick the patch and the patch sticks it on the Callus or corn.
Keep both non-stop on the leg but every day propolis replaced with a new piece.
How many days should repeat the treatment depends on how deep root, and is usually from 5 to 10 days.
During this time, propolis should chew corn together with the root, so it can be quite easy and almost painless to uproot.
This is probably the most effective natural remedy for corns, and so the first on the list.
A large number of resources such purposes that are on sale are just based on propolis.
Onions and apple cider vinegar
One small onion cut in half, soak in apple cider vinegar and leave it there for 3-4 hours.
During that time the onion should soak in vinegar, but should not it drop too much of their juice, which would happen if it were immersed in a large quantity of vinegar.
Do this in the late afternoon, 3-4 hours before going to bed.
Then, before bedtime onion with a larger patch cover the corn.
Repeat the process several days, until the onions and apple cider vinegar do not bite the corn.
This natural substance also falls into one that can completely remove callus.
Licorice root and castor oil
Mix one tablespoon of powder licorice with castor oil to obtain a thick paste.
Before going to bed, apply the corn in a thicker layer and attach the patch again.
Leave overnight and in the morning, remove the patch and wash the affected area with lukewarm water.
Then again put the paste and plaster.
So, puts out twice a day, morning and evening, a few days ago.
Pineapple or papaya + baking soda
There are two very simple natural remedies for removing callus.
