Corns are hard cone-shaped bumps commonly found on any bony prominence where excess pressure occurs, particularly over a joint. Those yellowish kernel-sized bumps can make being on your toes a harrowing experience. They’re caused by friction and pressure and are as old as feet themselves. The ideal condition for corns to form occurs when the skin is wedged between a shoe and a bone on the foot. They’re like miniature calluses and have to be treated in the same way. Book an appointment with one of our Chiropodists to treat your corns today.

How do you treat it?
Treatment requires removal through painless debridement. After this procedure, padding of various sorts (for example, felt or moleskin) may be applied to remove excess pressure from the affected area.
