For people who are faced with this problem, the main question is how to get rid of dry calluses on their hands. Detailed information on calluses with a stem in the material - Callus: causes, structure, treatment
The main medicines that help remove such calluses are external agents with a keratolytic effect, which is provided by salicylic acid, urea (urea) or ammonium lactate (lactic acid salt) included in their composition: salicylic ointment , Solkokerasal, Hemozol , Keratolan, Karboderm, etc., corn fluid Kollomac
But before applying the ointment or cream to the corn, it must be made softer with a hot bath lasting a quarter of an hour - in a soapy solution with the addition of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and ammonia (no more than 10-12 drops per half liter of solution); with salt and baking soda dissolved in water (a teaspoon per 0.5 l) or with the addition of apple cider vinegar (half a glass per 500 ml). The softened corn is rubbed with a pumice stone, then the hand is rinsed, wiped dry and an ointment is used. It is recommended that such procedures be carried out every other day.
This procedure also precedes the use of plasters from dry corns .
And therapeutic hand creams contribute to moisturizing and softening the skin .
Additionally, dermatologists advise taking vitamins A, C and D.
The alternative treatment differs from the above described method in that after a warm bath, not a pharmaceutical agent is applied to the corn, but, for example, raw onions, aloe leaf pulp, grated garlic, pine resin.
And herbal treatment is carried out with the same hot baths with decoctions of such medicinal plants as licorice (using the root), chamomile (flowers), sage. And on the steamed corn put a compress with the juice of fresh celandine leaves. If there is an emergency, surgical treatment is performed - laser removal or cryodestruction with liquid nitrogen, although the frequency of relapses after such treatment is quite high. In cases of dry corns with a deep core, surgical excision is resorted to.
