Different Types of Corns

Monday, 12 April 2021 00:00

corn on the foot is often the result of increased pressure in a small area. They can gradually develop from wearing shoes that do not fit correctly, and typically appear in different areas of the foot. A soft corn is found between the toes, and can develop from the toes rubbing together from pressure that is exerted on them. This type of corn can cause severe pain and discomfort, and may affect the way you walk. Hard corns are found on the outer edge of the pinky toe, or on the bottom of the foot. Mild relief may be found when the foot is soaked in warm water, and the corn may begin to diminish when the correct size and style shoes are worn. If you have a corn, and would like to learn about proper treatment methods, it is suggested that you confer with a podiatrist.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact Abeer M. Foteh, DPM of Greater Houston Foot Centers. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.
