A Common Cause of Corns

Corns on the feet can be a result of wearing shoes that do not fit correctly. A corn is defined as a small, hardened patch of skin, and can develop on the outside of the pinky toe. Additionally, corns may form between the toes, or on the bottom of the feet. They can cause pain and discomfort, and larger shoes may have to be purchased to accommodate the corn. It is beneficial to try shoes on in the later part of the day when the feet are at their largest. This may help to ensure that shoes fit properly. Relief may be found when a protective pad is worn over the corn, which can alleviate a portion of existing pressure. If you or your child are limping, or complaining about toe pain, please schedule an appointment with a podiatrist who can determine how to properly treat corns on the feet.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact Dr. Mina Abadeer of Lower Limb Institute. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.
