Where Do Corns Develop?

Monday, 25 January 2021 00:00

Many people overlook the importance of taking care of their feet. This can include wearing shoes and socks that do not fit correctly. Excessive friction between the toes and the shoe may cause corns, which can be quite uncomfortable. Corns are  small areas of hardened flesh that can appear on top of the toes and on the bottom of the foot. A soft corn generally develops between the toes, and has the possibility of becoming infected. Patients may find it beneficial to wear cushioned pads over existing corns on top of the toes. This may help to alleviate a portion of the pain that is associated with corns. If you have developed corns on any part of your foot, please speak with a podiatrist who can help you to manage this condition.

Corns can make walking very painful and should be treated immediately. If you have questions regarding your feet and ankles, contact one of our podiatrists of Port Richmond Family Footcare. Our doctors 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Lumberton, NJ, Penn Boulevard, and Allegheny Avenue, in Philadelphia . We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
