Corn and Callous Removal

There are two main types of foot corns: soft and hard corns. Soft is usually between the toes, while hard corns are on the top of your feet. Both can be caused by a variety of factors.

What Causes Corns?

  • Toes rubbing
  • Toes rubbing in your shoes
  • Shoes that are too tight
  • Moisture between the toes
  • Any ongoing pressure
  • Other foot conditions like Hammertoe

If you do have other foot conditions, like Hammertoe, you may need a more complex surgery. This may result in needing bone reconstruction. Regardless, corn or callous removal will usually not be painful.

Be Cautious if Removing Corns or Callouses Yourself

Some DIY techniques to eliminate foot corns or callouses are harmless, but some can cause more damage than good. You can soak your foot in warm soapy water and gently scrub at the corn. This may relieve some of the pain when you’re walking.

But other at-home products that use chemicals for corn removal are not recommended. They can burn your skin, and even cause infections. This is why it’s vital to see a podiatrist if you’re experiencing any symptoms of corns or callouses. It’s best not to risk causing further damage to your feet.

Look for a Reputable Podiatrist

If your corns or callouses are causing agonizing pain, natural remedies aren’t going to cut it. You’ll likely require a corn removal surgery.

If they’re hindering your ability to carry on with a normal day-to-day life, it’s time to seek out help. Find a reputable podiatrist and look at your treatment options.

What to Look for in a Reputable Podiatrist:

  • Good online reviews
  • Qualified in corn and callus removal surgeries
  • Communicative
  • Good hours of operation
  • Referral from a reputable doctor

Even with minor surgery, it’s crucial to find a reputable doctor to perform the procedure. An inexperienced doctor could make an error. Which could result in infections after the procedure.

Final Thoughts

It can be uncomfortable and sometimes downright excruciating to experience corns or callouses. Luckily, corn removal is not always complicated. You may need a simple shaving down of the corn. Or you could need a more intricate surgery. Seeking out a high-quality podiatrist will tell you more about your particular situation.

Dr. Sack and Dr. Dunn are the only podiatrists I trust my feet with. Dr. Sack has seen me through many injuries and two surgeries now. He always listens to my concerns, and exhausts every option before we head down the surgical route. I love how responsive he is to his patients. I know if I ever have a question, he'll get back to me promptly. If you have problems with your feet, I highly recommend this practice! You won't be disappointed!

I have been seeing Dr Dunn for years and he is great. A+++++ all around.
Why knew that "quarantine foot" was a thing? Just putting gym shoes back on around the house has helped a ton with my foot pain. Dr. Dunn is the best!
