Corns Can Be In Two Places on the Foot

Pain can often accompany a corn on the foot. A hard corn is defined as a small, toughened area that develops on top of the toes. It generally forms due to wearing shoes that do not fit correctly. The shoes may be too tight, and this can cause friction as the toes rub against the top of the shoes. A soft corn forms between the toes and is generally moist a majority of the time. Mild relief may be found when a protective covering is worn on top of the corn, or in between the toes. This can help to cushion and protect the corn as daily activities are completed. It is suggested to refrain from wearing high heels with an existing corn, in addition to limiting the amount of walking. If you have developed a corn, please speak to a podiatrist who can recommend proper removal techniques.

Corns can make walking very painful and should be treated immediately. If you have questions regarding your feet and ankles, contact Gary Cockrell, DPM of Tennessee. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.

Corns: What Are They? And How Do You Get Rid of Them?
Corns are thickened areas on the skin that can become painful. They are caused by excessive pressure and friction on the skin. Corns press into the deeper layers of the skin and are usually round in shape.

Ways to Prevent Corns
There are many ways to get rid of painful corns such as:

  • Wearing properly fitting shoes that have been measured by a professional
  • Wearing shoes that are not sharply pointed or have high heels
  • Wearing only shoes that offer support

Treating Corns

Although most corns slowly disappear when the friction or pressure stops, this isn’t always the case. Consult with your podiatrist to determine the best treatment option for your case of corns.
