Hello My name is***** will try my best to help you today.

I am really sorry that you are going through this. It must be really difficult for you.

Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 11 days ago.

Does it pain or itch?

Is it difficult to put pressure on this area?

Customer: replied 11 days ago.
Sometimes it hurts when I am standing on my feet for a long time, but this is rare and most days it is fine.
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 11 days ago.

This is basically a corn secondary to pressure and callous in the heal. I would advise you to go to podiatrist and they will shave off the area and help you in managing this.

There is nothing to worry about, it is benign and it will resolve.

Thank you. How long should it take for this to clear after they shave it off? Is it safe to go swimming or walk around on holiday with it?
Expert:  Khizra Naz replied 11 days ago.

Yes. No problem. It will take couple of week.s
