A foot corn refers to the infection caused due to thickening of the skin on the top side of the toes from shoe pressure. Common causes of corns and callus include footwear that is too small or tight, toe abnormalities such as clawed or hammer toes, bony prominence’s such as bunions and poor foot mechanics when walking or running. In order to protect itself, the skin on the foot area thickens up and eventually becomes painful at the area of the corn. A corn is a thicker, more focal area with a central core which usually forms over a bony prominence such as a joint – they are almost always painful.

Use of these types of remedies can be very risky in those with poor circulation or diabetes and is not recommended. Do not try to cut away corns and calluses yourself, they can be removed safely and painlessly by a podiatrist with immediate relief. Corns and Verrucae can have a very similar appearance, a good way to differentiate between them is by using the squeeze test. Foot corns could appear in colors like yellow, white, brown and ray as per the type of skin. Main causes of foot corns include wearing tight fitting shoes, any stitch inside the shoe, abnormal walking, bunions, and at times, not wearing sandals with socks.
