Treatments for Corns

Tuesday, 01 March 2022 00:00

Corns are circular areas of raised, thickened skin that can usually be found on or around the toes. They are caused by repetitive friction over an area of skin. Corns can be soft or hard, depending on their location. Soft corns are more likely to form in between the toes, whereas hard corns are more likely to form on the tops or sides of toes. Corns may need medical attention if they are painful or if you have a medical condition like diabetes or a connective tissue disease. With your podiatrist’s approval, you may soak the corns in warm water and file them down with a pumice stone at home. You may also be prescribed a plaster to wear over the corn or a cream to apply to it to soften the thickened skin. For more information about corns, please consult with a podiatrist. 

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact one of our podiatrists of Summerlin Foot & Ankle. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.
