WHAT IS HYPERKERATOSIS?
Hyperkeratosis – Hyper meaning excess (from Greek) and Keratin is the main structural protein that forms skin, hair and nails. It is a process that thickens the outer layer of the skin as a part of the immune systems normal response against rubbing, pressure and other forms of local irritation like foot warts.
The natural body’s response to pressure is to protect the affected area. It generally will lay down more skin to try to protect the structures involved, however, the skin has poor cushioning properties and as more pressure is applied, more skin is laid down.
In case of the foot wart, the process is similar however much more dangerous. The organism responds to
the irritation that the wart causes by creating excessive skin around it (verrucal keratosis). This combined with the pressure from walking is causing extreme pain and stress to your organism. The body reacts to the stress by producing more skin that causes even more pressure forming a very dangerous dead skin production cycle. This process is called by many specialist Intractable Plantar Keratosis (IPK).
