Treatment and Prevention for Corns

Corns may develop as a natural protective measure against the pressure and friction endured by your feet. Over time, corns can become uncomfortable as the skin thickens, cracks, or becomes tender. If you have corns on your feet it is recommended to avoid taking long walks or standing for prolonged periods of time, as this could further aggravate the skin. To prevent corns, you may try wearing cushioned socks, wearing comfortable well-fitting shoes, using heel pads or insoles, regularly moisturizing your feet, and avoid walking barefoot. Seeing a podiatrist for your corns is also beneficial. A podiatrist can recommend appropriate footwear, remove callused skin, and prescribe additional treatments to reduce your pain and prevent corns from recurring in the future.

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 Michigan Foot & Ankle Center. 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.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact one of our offices located in Livonia, and Southfield, MI . We offer the newest diagnostic and treatment technologies for all your foot and ankle needs.
