Help Heal Callused Heels

Thick, dry calluses on the heel can be painful and can bleed if they crack. I have found this at-home treatment effective. Tell patients to use 60-grade aluminum dioxide sandpaper on a sanding block to remove the bulk of the callus. Next, have them soak the affected foot in warm water for 10 minutes-or take a bath or shower. After patting dry the callused area, they can apply a small amount of hair gel that contains lanolin, then put on socks.
