What causes Corns?
There are many different causes Corns. The main cause of corns are caused by increased intermittent pressure over vulnerable areas of the foot or toes. They can be found anywhere on the feet but in general are located on the ball of the foot or on the top of toes. They form small lumps of hard skin which can look yellow and discoloured. A common corn would be found on the outer side of the little toe or in-between the forth and fifth toes. These are mainly caused by footwear adding pressure onto the skin. They can be very painful and limit walking or sports but can be painlessly managed.
What should I do if I think I have corns?
It is important to have your feet checked by a HcPC Chiropodist or Podiatrist to investigate if you have corns or other painful lumps such as Verrucae or underlying problems. It is especially important to have your feet checked if corns become painful. There are a few simple treatments a Chiropodist or Podiatrist can do to relieve your symptoms. Corns on the feet will not get better unless treated.
How can a Chiropodist or Podiatrist help?
After an initial consultation we will discuss your treatment options. Callous and corns can be managed by removing the hard skin with a sharp blade and smoothing the area with files. A routine chiropody treatment should be pain free, immediate relief will be felt and after your treatment you will be given further information to improve the overall health of your feet.
