Foot corns can be annoying. Typically, these calluses don’t require treatment and are not harmful. However, if you feel uncomfortable with their appearance or experience pain, seeking treatment may be the best course of action. Here at LePoer Podiatry, we can accommodate you.

We offer braces and splints to help you avoid putting pressure on sensitive areas of your feet. Along with this, we also provide medications, specifically Nonsteroidal Anti-inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs), to reduce the pain you may be experiencing as a result of your issue.

What Are Corns?

Corns are a kind of callus made of dead skin. They normally form on the top or the side of the toes on smooth, hairless skin surfaces, especially. Corns tend to develop in non-weight-bearing areas, such as across the tops of your toes. They form as your toes get pushed up against the insides of your shoes, and your skin becomes thicker and thicker. 

Corns can become painful and irritated. They more commonly occur between the toes in areas of moist and sweaty skin. Calluses and corns are not normally harmful, but sometimes they may lead to infections or ulcerations of the skin, especially among people with diabetes and those with poor circulation in the feet.

What Are the Treatment Options?

If you have corns and would prefer to live without them, we can help. We can provide you with the necessary care to remove these annoying growths, as well as supportive braces to minimize the pain you experience while your body heals. We can also provide medication that can alleviate your discomfort.
