Frequently Asked Questions

What is Podiatric protective padding?

A variety of pads may be used to treat or prevent calluses and corns. Protective padding such as adhesive metatarsal pads cushion the callus or corn or holds the foot and toes in a more comfortable position so that calluses or corns do not develop. You can purchase adhesive metatarsal pad protective padding in different sizes and shapes, or purchase sheets of material that you cut to fit your needs. Moleskin is a soft fabric with a thin layer of felt attached to a sticky backing. It is used most often on the feet to protect the skin from rubbing against footwear or against itself. It can also help cushion the feet when used as adhesive metatarsal pads.

What are some ways to use moleskin?

For smaller calluses and corns, cut a circle out of the moleskin and then cut the center out of the circle so you have a doughnut-shaped pad. Place the sticky backing on your skin so that the callus or corn is in the doughnut “hole” and the pad surrounds it.

For larger calluses on the ball of the foot, use adhesive metatarsal pads protective padding. Position the adhesive metatarsal pad so that it extends to the edge of the callus but does not cover the callus. This can be done for one or more calluses with one adhesive metatarsal pad. This pad transfers weight away from the callus. This pad is often known as adhesive metatarsal pads.

What have some studies shown about foot padding?

Felt padding like adhesive metatarsal pads has been used for a long time as a material for redistribution of foot pressure from various parts of the plantar surface of the foot, although there is little published research on the effect of felt on plantar pressure. According to Nube et al., the purpose of felt padding is to deflect pressure away from a particular area of the foot. They demonstrated that plantar pressure can be reduced in people with diabetes by the application of felt adhesive metatarsal pad that is adhered to the foot. They argued that foot ulceration in diabetes is precipitated and perpetuated by many factors, chiefly peripheral neuropathy and biomechanical abnormalities but offloading of plantar pressure is a key element in the management of diabetes-related neuropathic foot ulcers.

The technique principally involves the adherence of felt or felted-foam adhesive metatarsal pads to the sole of the foot, with an aperture cut into the material which corresponds with the ulcer location. Varying thicknesses of felt adhesive metatarsal pads and methods of adhesion are used. Holmes and Timmerman used a pedobaragraph to assess the effect of a simple adhesive metatarsal pads on pressures transmitted to metatarsal heads by measuring dynamic pressure for 100 participants with and without adhesive metatarsal pads. They concluded that, when properly positioned, metatarsal pads can be an inexpensive and effective means of reducing plantar pressure.

It can therefore be deduced from the literature that felt padding can play an important role in the management of patients’ foot health, but more research is required in this area as there is a variety of types and thicknesses of felt available.

When to Visit a Podiatrist?

If corns or calluses are causing pain and discomfort or inhibiting your daily life in any way, see a podiatrist. Also, people with diabetes, poor circulation, or other serious illnesses should have their feet checked.

How are corns and calluses diagnosed and treated?

The podiatrist will conduct a complete examination of your feet. X-rays may be taken; your podiatrist may also want to inspect your shoes and watch you walk. He or she will also take a complete medical history. Corns and calluses are diagnosed based on appearance and history.

If you have mild corns or calluses, your podiatrist may suggest changing your shoes and/or adding padding to your shoes. Larger corns and calluses are most effectively reduced (made smaller) with a surgical blade. A podiatrist can use the blade to carefully shave away the thickened, dead skin—right in the office. The procedure is painless because the skin is already dead. Additional treatments may be needed if the corn or callus recurs.
