Where Do Corns Develop?

Monday, 06 May 2019 00:00

Corns on the feet can be quite painful. They are hard areas of skin, and can develop between the toes, or on the bottom or sides of the feet. Typical symptoms often include pain while wearing shoes, rough or bumpy skin around the affected area, and it may be tender if touched. This foot condition develops as a result of wearing shoes that do not fit correctly, which may cause friction between the toes and the shoe. Mild relief is obtained when the foot is soaked in warm water, and this helps to soften the corn. Wearing a corn pad may lessen the pain, and this may aid in the healing process. If the pain from the corn prevents you from completing daily activities, it is advised that you schedule a consultation with a podiatrist who can implement methods for removal of the corn.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact Dr. Nooshin Zolfaghari of VIP Foot & Ankle Center. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.
