Causes of Corns

If you experience a bony knot on your toes or feet, you may have what is referred to as a hard corn. This is generally the result of the friction the feet endure, commonly due to poorly fitting shoes. Corns that appear between the toes often have a soft texture and occur when shoes are worn with a narrow toe area. Both types of corns can be painful and uncomfortable and may need to be treated, depending upon the severity. Choosing to wear shoes that fit correctly will not only feel more comfortable, but will aid in the treatment and prevention of corns. If there are additional foot problems present, such as diabetes, or any type of surgery performed that may have affected the bone structure, it’s important to relay that information to your podiatrist.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact the podiatrists of Apple Podiatry Group. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.
