Making your feet comfortable and pain free


Posted January 26th, 2012 by ethan -->

A corn is a focal area of callus generally over a bony prominence and is usually quite painful. This may occur on top of a toe, the tip of a toe, in between toes, (soft corn) or on the bottom of a foot.

Treatment: Unvolves careful debridement or paring down the callus or corn and deflective padding to remove pressure from painful areas. Long term deflective devices may include orthotics and or digital appliances, and footwear adjustments.

Other conditions that may be mistaken for corns include warts, various tumors of the skin, or a foreign body embedded in the skin.
