Whether you are checking out live music at Banana Boat, The Living Room, or Elmo’s Rock Bar & Grill, you have some amazing options for catching the sounds of Palm Beach County with friends in Boynton Beach, FL. As the guitarists, bassists, and drummers groove, you can think about the calluses on their hands from countless hours of practicing and performing. This is the body’s natural response to friction and pressure and it’s important to know that it can happen on your feet, too. Fortunately, treatment for corns and calluses can be quite beneficial.
The best place to start is with home care. There are several remedies that may work for you, including the use of a pumice stone and moisturizers. If you do not live with diabetes or any other condition resulting in poor circulation, try the following:
- Soak your feet. Fill a basin or tub with warm, soapy water and immerse your feet for 10-15 minutes to soften the skin.
- Use a pumice stone. With gentle pressure, rub a pumice stone over the callused area in circular motions. Do not try to remove the rough patch of skin in one sitting. This is the start of a process that should be spread out over several sessions.
- Rinse your feet and moisturize. Rinse away the soapy water and debrided skin with clear water. Pat them with a soft towel to remove excess moisture, but keep them a little damp (except the areas between the toes). Liberally apply moisturizing cream or lotion to the rough area and work it into the skin.
If this approach doesn’t show results after a few sessions, it is time to seek the professional care we offer at our offices. You don’t want to end up with cracked heels or split skin that could open your feet to infection.
Don’t let skin conditions on your feet stop you from dancing the night away!
