What Is A Foot Corn?

A foot corn is a uniquely shaped callus that resembles a pebble or a corn kernel; it almost seems like you stepped on a little rock Because of it’s shape, the corn concentrates the pressure into a small pinpoint pinpoint area. This causes deep tissue pain and potential ulceration.

What Happens If The Foot Corn Is Not Removed:

Two options are possible:

  1. There will be deep aching pain preventing you from standing or walking.
  2. There is an eventual likelihood of bleeding. This is dangerous in diabetics and people with inflammatory arthritis because it can get infected and have trouble healing.

Make sure to measure your 1)Foot Length 2) Arch Length and 3) Foot Width. These 3 things have a major impact on your foot pressures. Get a podiatrist or athletic shoe store to help you out!

  • Avoid Tight Shoe Gear:

Get a good running shoe. Try it on late at night when your feet are the most swollen (after a long day of standing), and never in the morning. May sure you have a finger length between your longest toe and the front of the shoe, and get a recommendation from the store or your podiatrist based on your foot type if possible.

Running shoes over dress and heeled shoes are the way to go if possible.

 

  • Over The Counter Inserts:

I can’t say how enough how important a stiff insert is to maintain proper pressure distribution! Get a stiff insert, not a gel insert and use it to prevent your flat foot pain, corns and calluses. I promise it will be one of the best 25$ investments you will ever make!

 

  • Gel Pads For Toes and Foot:

Get some cheap foot pads to go between your toes and around the corn. These are extremely cheap (<5$) and it will feel like you are walking on a cloud! Even if the corn is removed, avoid excess pressure to that area.

  • Foam Or Moleskin Cutouts :

This is the same principle as the foot pads above, but this is homemade. If you don’t want to purchase the pads, make your own at home from felt padding!

  • Moisturizing Lotions (Petroleum Jelly):

This is an extremely easy and effective way to reduce pain and prevent pressure. Simply rub some petroleum jelly or any other moisturizing lotion into your calluses and corns before you go to bed at night. This will make them easier to rub down with a pumice stone if you choose to go that route. It will also make the calluses and corns less painful throughout the day.
