Can a Podiatrist remove a corn?

Written by City Feet Clinic Wednesday, 16 November 2022 12:47

Key concepts about corns we discuss in this blog:

- what is a corn? 

- how does a Podiatrist remove a corn?

- how can I prevent corns becoming painful?

Let's begin with what a Corn is 

A corn is a typically circular, painful, area of extremely dense (focal) thickened skin on the foot. Corn differs from a callous which is an area of thickened skin. 

Can a Podiatrist remove a corn?

Yes we can! 

The removal of a corn is typically pain free, although you might feel slight discomfort. The Podiatrist will use a scalpel to gently remove the corn. They do this in layers. Beginning with the top layer of hardened skin, which has developed on top of the corn. They then remove the corn itself.

How can I prevent corns becoming painful?

Regular visits to a Podiatrist for a Medi-Cure (Medical Pedicure) will ensure they find and remove the corns early, which will prevent build up of thickened skin occurring. Avoid wearing tight shoes can also help. Tight shoes will create pressure on the foot and this can result in the development of a corn. With friction over time this can cause the corn to become painful. By having good cushioning in your shoes, this will help to reduce pressure on the area. 

Having a regular Medi-Cure can help prevent corns becoming painful. Very similar to a regular dental check up, having your feet checked routinely is an important part of taking care of your body.
