Corns and calluses can both be prevented by alleviating the areas of tension on the feet.  High tension and friction areas can often be improved by wearing more comfortable shoes or inserting orthopedic inserts for the problem areas. A doctor will need to treat certain corns depending on the severity and persistence of the corns. There are acid based solutions that will treat smaller and less severe corns that you can purchase at pharmacies. Any person with diabetes should immediately consult a podiatrist concerning corns or any such abnormalities, as they could lead to infection and tissue damage. Removing corns yourself can be a long and potentially painful process and if not done properly can result in infection. A corn foot is similar to a callus in that they both are caused by high pressure or tension to certain spots on the feet. Although they may require treatment from a podiatrist, corns do not often require surgery, unless there is bone deformity, under the callus.

However, corn removal is an easy and pain free process here at the Colorado Foot Institute.  In order to manage the problem areas, we will first assess the cause of these corns and work out a plan to properly manage them. Mechanik has combined his medical and surgical skills to enhance the way people look and feel about their feet through a variety of cosmetic interventions. This will help keep corns and calluses away, especially if you rub a pumice stone on the feet after they have been soaked. There are many options to take care of unsightly or painful corns including regular maintenance of the problematic areas, custom fit or padded footwear, orthotics, or surgical correction depending on the severity. If the skin on your feet is dry, you can apply a moisturizing cream to prevent friction burns from your toes rubbing against each other. Soft corns can also develop between your toes and will have a softer texture due to the moisture of its environment. Pressure and friction are the causes of both corns and calluses, however, corns are the product of direct friction in a circular or semi-circular motion.

Corns can be painful and unsightly and difficult to remove safely without the help of a podiatrist.
There are inserts you can buy to place into your shoes to make them more comfortable for you, as well as pads that can be applied to calluses and corns (hard nodules of dead callus tissue) to keep them from getting worse. I have used those over-the-counter corn removers from the drugstore and they worked pretty well. All I had to do was apply the little medicated pads on the corn and leave them on for an extended period of time.
