Introduction to Corns

A corn is caused due to a localized thickening of the skin due to pressure. Corns often occur on the top of the toes where there is pressure from the shoes. However, they also occur at the sole of the foot and in between toes. Certain corns may become entwined with the nerves of the skin, these corns are particularly painful. Often corns develop a core which is often referred to as the "root" by patients. Corns can be very painful, especially if there is inflammation and swelling around the corn. This condition is more prevalent in females as a result of wearing tight or ill-fitting shoes.

 

 

Causes & Treatment Options for Corns

Corns appear as white/ grey or yellow/ brown in colour depending on your skin type. They are well circumscribed and may appear as large dots on the foot.

There are many causative factors. The most common are tight shoes, deformed toes (hammer toes), seam or stitch inside the shoe which rubs against the toe, abnormality of gait (walking), surgery to the lower extremities and bunions.
