Hyperkeratosis is a thickening of the outer layer of the skin. This outer layer contains a tough, protective protein called keratin.
This skin thickening is often part of the skin's natural protection against rubbing, pressure and other forms of local irritation.
It causes calluses and corns on hands and feet.
Many forms of Hyperkeratosis are painless.
Corns, calluses and plantar warts, however, can cause a great deal of discomfort.
There may be itchy, scaly patches of skin that is associated with lichen planus.
Wearing proper footwear, socks and orthotics will help alleviate discomfort from corns, calluses and warts.
Our orthotics are customized to your specific foot width, foot arch, and foot length. The proper fit provides better custom support, redistributing pressure and reducing pain.
