What Are Corns?

Monday, 25 November 2019 00:00

Corns are hardened layers of skin that take the form of a yellow-colored bump, most commonly found on the side or bottom of one’s feet. Corns are often sensitive to the touch and may cause pain when wearing shoes. They normally form due to improper footwear that provides little space for your feet, and commonly affect those who walk or stand for long periods of time. To remove a corn, we recommend you seek professional care from a podiatrist who can treat your condition and alleviate your pain. 

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 Accent Podiatry Associates. 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.
