What Is A Foot Corn?

A foot corn is a uniquely shaped callus that resembles a kernel of corn. Because of it’s shape, the pressure distributes into a pinpoint area, causing much more pain than a large callus would. This causes deep tissue pain, bruising and possible ulceration.

Home Foot Corn Cure:

Step #1) Soften The Callus!

  • Moisturize:

-Use petroleum jelly or any other type of moisturizing lotion. Just apply it at night and cover it up with a band-aid, or put some socks on so it doesn’t get into your bed sheets. This will soften your calluses up all night so that they are soft and less painful in the morning.

-Aloe Vera, Cocoa Butter or Lotions + Socks also work very well.

-The more times you do this, the easier it will be to remove the callus or corn later.

-Warning: It is important to not get the lotion in between your toes, this could cause peeling.

-Combine this after a foot bath for boosted effect!

 

  • Soak your feet:

-Pour some slightly warm water (but not hot) and mix it in with some epsom salts (1/2 cup or as directed for you volume of water). There is not a huge amount of data for epsom salts, but it does soak more water into the outer skin and make it softer. Do this while watching TV for 20-30 minutes or so.

-Moisturize with the step above overnight for added effect.

 

  • Take The Callus Down!

-After moisturizing and softening your callus, use an emery board or a pumice stone to take down the callus and pop the corn out.

-Emery Board or Pumice Stone works very well.

-Stop when you feel pain, but usually a callus can go down very far until you get to normal tissue.

-Never use something sharp at home.

-Don’t do this if a diabetic or you have decreased sensation!

 

  • Antibiotic Cream:

-Add any type of antibiotic cream if the skin is ever broken or bleeding.

  • Synthetic Socks:

-Cotton holds sweat and water, dehydrating your skin.

-Think about synthetic socks if you spend a good deal amount of time on your feet.

  • Anti-Inflammatory Medication:

-Use as directed by your pharmacist or podiatrist to keep the inflammation down. The area of the callus will still probably be sore where you were walking.

  • See A Podiatrist:

-These can all be temporary methods, seeing a podiatrist to correct the deformity may be the only way to get permanent results.

-If the corn & callus is removed and the pain is still there for a long time means that you likely have a deformity in that area and it may need to be corrected either biomechanically or through surgery.

– The only long term solution is to get worked up!

The differences are listed below.In Michigan Podiatrists are trained and authorized to perform surgery in the foot and ankle up to the tibial tubercle below the knee.All our podiatrists and foot doctors have undergone rigorous training including a 4 undergraduate college degree, writing the medical school entrance exam (MCAT), followed by a 4 year medical school degree (DPM - Doctor of Podiatric Medicine),Once podiatrists in the USA complete the rigorous 4 year medical school courses, they are required to complete a minimum of 3 years of a surgical and non-surgical residency program. Some podiatrists and foot doctors then choose to go on to further fellowship training specializing in various forms of specialty such as diabetic surgery or reconstructive foot and ankle surgery.The training is not over yet!
