Cracked heels are a common feet problem, because heels and toes are daily exposed to pressure and constant friction, hardening the skin, and, furthermore, corns and calluses will appear.
My aunt is a nurse and her feet are restless. All that she knows is to take care of patients and accomplish every daily task, which, at some point will lead to health degradation. Her feet are swollen and she tries to get rid of a huge and painful callus that appeared on her sole for a year know. It kept reappearing even after medical intervention. What can I say? It’s part of her body! (lol).
Hence, she decided to try some natural remedies to get rid of this ugly callus stuck on the sole of her feet, and guess what? I can’t say that the callus disappeared like magic (it takes time and patience to get rid of calluses completely with natural remedies), but the pain is gone and she can walk normally again.
– warm water
– pumice stone
It’s easy! Soak your feet in warm water (you can add a cup of baking soda) for 20 minutes, and then start scrubbing them with a pumice stone, insisting on the callus. Don’t forget to rub the entire sole feet and heels to prevent the appearance of other calluses.
– 1 teaspoon of dry chamomile
– the juice of one lemon
– 1 garlic clove
So, crush the garlic clove and mix it with the other ingredients. Apply this mix to the painful callus and let it act for 20 minutes. Rinse it with lukewarm water.
Tip: cover the mix with a bandage or put on a sock to be more effective
– 1 onion
– lemon juice
Ok! The last remedy needs a minced onion, mixed with a few drops of lemon juice and half a teaspoon of salt.
Apply the remedy over the callus and cover it with a bandage. Let it act overnight and rinse in the morning with lukewarm water.
Good to know! Apply these remedies every evening for 2 weeks in a row, even if the pain will fade away from the first day. I think you aim to kill the callus!
