mission bend tx podiatrist foot corn treatmentWith so much daily force and pressure on our feet, it’s no wonder our feet suffer from so many aches and pains. If you are struggling with uncomfortable or unsightly corns on your feet, our Mission Bend, TX, podiatrist shares what you can do to fix the problem.

Our Mission Bend, TX, Podiatrist Shares Information About Corns

Corns are hard, thickened areas of dead skin that usually develop on the tops and sides of your toes. You may not even notice corns on your foot, although advanced corns can make even walking painful.

Types of Corns

According to our Mission Bend podiatrist, there are two types of corns. A hard corn is described as having a small “plug” of thick dead skin in the center, while a soft corn’s whitish surface is much thinner, and usually forms between your toes.

Your Shoes Are the Likely Culprit

While some corns develop as a result of a foot abnormality or an uneven gait, most corns are caused by ill-fitted footwear that puts extra pressure and friction on your toes. In fact, women who wear high heels are four times more likely to develop corns than men. People who wear sandals or shoes without socks may also develop corns, due to the excess friction on skin around the foot from the shoe’s leather or rubber interior.

How to Treat Corns

Most corns eventually go away once you remove the source of friction, although our Mission Bend, TX, podiatrist may want to treat your condition with additional measures. When purchasing shoes, we recommend that you avoid ones with cramped, pointed toes, and also make sure that your feet are not slightly different sizes.

When to Consult Our Mission Bend, TX, Podiatrist About Corns

You should make an appointment to see our experienced podiatrist in Mission Bend if you experience the following:

  • The corn gets irritated, painful, or starts to bleed
  • You notice pus discharge around the area of the corn
  • There is no obvious source of pressure to cause the corn to form
  • You have other medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease
