Corns

Definition

Corns like calluses develop from an accumulation of dead skin cells on the foot, forming thick, hardened areas.  They contain a cone-shaped core whose point can press on a nerve below, causing pain.  Corns are a very common ailment that usually form on the tops, sides and tips of the toes.  Corns can become inflamed due to constant friction and pressure from footwear.  Corns that form between the toes are sometimes referred to as soft corns.

Cause

Some of the common causes of corn development are tight fitting footwear, high heeled footwear, tight fitting stockings and socks, deformed toes, or the foot sliding forward in a shoe that fits too loosely.  Soft corns are result from bony prominences and are located between the toes.  They become soft due to perspiration in the forefoot area.

Complications that can arise from corns include bursitis and the development of an ulcer.

Treatment and Prevention

There are very simple ways to prevent and treat the development of corns.  You should wear properly fitted footwear with extra room in the toe box (toe area).  Avoid shoes that are too tight or too loose.  Use an orthotic or shoe insert made with materials that will absorb shock and shear forces.  Also avoiding tight socks and stockings to provide a healthier environment for the foot.

Try to steer away from corn removing solutions and medicated pads.  These solutions can sometimes increase irritation and discomfort.   Diabetics and all other individuals with poor circulation should never use any chemical agents to remove corns.

If the problem persists, consult your foot doctor.
