If your feet or toes endure excess pressure and friction, you may develop what is known as a corn. It is typically a small and hardened area of skin that will often cause discomfort and pain while wearing shoes. General causes for this condition to occur may originate from wearing shoes that are too small, or from walking for extended periods of time. Once the corns are treated, there may be several ways to prevent this uncomfortable condition from occurring again. These may include wearing shoes and socks that fit properly, using protective pads and by periodically having the corn palliatively debrided by a podiatrist. Research has shown that our feet may become larger as the aging process occurs, and it's important to regularly measure our feet, which can aid in determining the correct shoe size. If you have corns and your daily activities are affected, please schedule a consultation with one of our expert podiatrists at Advanced Podiatry for treatment options that are right for you.
 
 
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 over a bony prominence. 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. Minor corrective surgical options are available to eliminate painful and stubborn corns that are effecting your lifestyle. Consult with one of our expert podiatrists to determine the best treatment option for your case of corns.
