Ayurvedic Cure Without Surgery

What are Corns and Calluses :

Ayurveda describes corns as Kadara (in Sansrit language). 

Corns and calluses are lump of dead skin  (thick, hardened layers of skin). They develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. They most often develop on the feet and toes or hands and fingers. Corns and calluses can be unsightly. Corns and calluses are not the same thing.

You need treatment for corns and calluses only if they cause discomfort. For most people, simply eliminating the source of friction or pressure makes corns and calluses disappear. If you have diabetes or another condition that causes poor blood flow to your feet, you’re at greater risk of complications from corns and calluses.

Corns and calluses are always a big challenge to cure since long time.  With the knowledge of Ayurveda and Agni Karma treatment, Dr. Prasad Bapat simplified the  complex surgical method.

Symptoms of Corns:

  • A thick, rough area of skin
  • A hardened, raised bump
  • Tenderness or pain under your skin
  • Flaky, dry or waxy skin

Corns and calluses are not the same thing.

  • Corns are smaller than calluses and have a hard center surrounded by inflamed skin. Corns tend to develop on parts of your feet that don’t bear weight, such as the tops and sides of your toes and even between your toes. They can also be found in weight-bearing areas. Corns can be painful when pressed.
  • Calluses are rarely painful. They usually develop on the soles of your feet, especially under the heels or balls, on your palms, or on your knees. Calluses vary in size and shape and are often larger than corns.

Causes of Corns :

Ayurvedic concept –

Kadara may grow due to imbalance of Vata with Kapha doshaVata and Kapha dosha are considered as the important factors resulting in Shotha (inflammation) and Shoola (pain).

Modern concept –

Pressure and friction from repetitive actions cause corns and calluses to develop and grow. Some sources of this pressure and friction include:

  • Wearing ill-fitting shoes.Tight shoes and high heels can compress areas of your feet. When footwear is too loose, your foot may repeatedly slide and rub against the shoe. Your foot may also rub against a seam or stitch inside the shoe.
  • Skipping socks.Wearing shoes and sandals without socks can cause friction on your feet. Socks that don’t fit properly also can be a problem.
  • Playing instruments or using hand tools.Calluses on your hands may result from the repeated pressure of playing instruments, using hand tools or even writing.

Diagnosis:

  • Physical examination – of the feet to rule out other causes of thickened skin, such as warts and cysts.
  • X-ray of the hand or foot to determine if a physical anomaly is causing the corn or callus.

Ayurvedic Treatment for Corns:

Vata and Kapha are mainly responsible DoshaDushya Meda and Rakta in the pathogenesis of Kadar.

Ayurveda has significant role in managing Corns and Calluses by practicing a combination of corrective Ahar (diet), Vihar (exercise) and Aushadhi (medicines).

  • Hot, milky, creamy cereals (wheat, oatmeal or rice), soups and stews are all good for pacifying Vata.
  • Herbal teas (camomile, fennel, basil) are beneficial for Vataenergy slumps.
  • Stimulants such as coffee and alcohol should be avoided.
  • Warm/hot water should be consumed throughout the day to flush out impurities and balance Vata.

Modern Medical Treatments for Corns :

Warning : We serve only Ayurvedic herbal treatments. We don’t practice any of below  treatments. They are mentioned only for knowledge of readers.

If a corn or callus persists or becomes painful despite your self-care efforts, medical treatments can provide relief:

  • Trimming away excess skin : Your doctor can pare down thickened skin or trim a large corn with a scalpel, usually during an office visit. Don’t try this yourself because it could lead to an infection.
  • Callus-removing medication : Your doctor may also apply a patch containing 40 percent salicylic acid (Clear Away, MediPlast,others). Such patches are available without a prescription. Your doctor will let you know how often you need to replace this patch. He or she may recommend that you use a pumice stone, nail file or emery board to smooth away dead skin before applying a new patch. You can also get a prescription for salicylic acid in gel form to apply on larger areas.
  • Surgery : In rare instances, your doctor may recommend surgery to correct the alignment of a bone causing friction.

Prevention / Home Remedies :

If you have diabetes or another condition that causes poor blood flow, consult your doctor before treating a corn and callus on your own.

If you have no underlying health problems, try these suggestions to help clear up a corn or callus:

  • Use over-the-counter pads – Apply a pad to protect the area where a corn or callus developed. Be careful using over-the-counter (nonprescription) liquid corn removers or medicated corn pads. These contain salicylic acid, which can irritate healthy skin and lead to infection, especially in people with diabetes or other conditions that cause poor blood flow.
  • Soak your hands or feet – Soaking your hands or feet in warm, soapy water softens corns and calluses. This can make it easier to remove the thickened skin.
  • Thin thickened skin – During or after bathing, rub a corn or callus with a pumice stone, nail file, emery board or washcloth to help remove a layer of toughened skin. Don’t use a sharp object to trim the skin. Don’t use a pumice stone if you have diabetes.
  • Moisturize your skin – Apply moisturizer to your hands and feet to help keep the skin soft.
  • Wear comfortable shoes and socks – Stick to well-fitting, cushioned shoes and socks until your corn or callus disappears.
