Should I cut off the corn on my foot?

While corns may by unsightly and uncomfortable, you should not cut off the corn on your foot, since you are putting yourself at risk for injury and infection. There are options to treat the condition yourself at home, however.

One measure that you can take to address the problem is switching to roomier shoes, which reduces the amount of pressure placed upon a corn. You can try adding pads of soft lamb’s wool to your footwear too. These practices will not eliminate the corn, but can help manage the discomfort it causes.

Over-the-counter remedies for eliminating corns include pads that contain salicylic acid. These cover the corn and provide an extra barrier of protection from pressure. It takes several days’ worth of use, but this method can be effective in dealing with the issue. Please note that those individuals with diabetes or autoimmune disorders should NOT attempt at-home treatments and should make an appointment with Foot & Ankle Associates instead to safely treat your corns.

If you have corns or are experiencing any other foot or ankle difficulties, contact Foot & Ankle Associates in Sugar Land at (888) 784-5335 to schedule an appointment with Dr. Marco Vargas today.
