What Causes Corns?

Monday, 02 March 2020 00:00

Patients who have experienced corns on their toes are often aware of the pain and discomfort they may cause. A corn is defined as a portion of skin that has thickened as a result of excess friction. This can happen when shoes that are worn do not fit correctly. Common places for a corn to develop can be on the inside or top of the toes, in addition to the bottom of the feet. Some patients find moderate relief when the foot is soaked in warm water, followed by using a pumice stone to gently remove the corn. For severe or stubborn corns, it is suggested that you seek the counsel of a podiatrist who can guide you toward the correct treatment options.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact Davinder Bhela, DPM of Hicksville Podiatry. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.
