Professional Foot Corn Removal

Tuesday, 28 May 2024 00:00

Corns are hard, thickened areas of skin that form on the feet in response to pressure and friction. They typically develop on the toes or the soles of the feet. These skin lesions can cause discomfort and pain, particularly when pressure is applied, such as while wearing shoes. Although corns form to protect the skin, they often grow too thick and need to be managed. A podiatrist, or foot doctor, can professionally remove corns through several methods. One common technique is carefully paring down the thickened skin using a scalpel. This should only be done by a professional to avoid injury. For persistent corns, a podiatrist may also use salicylic acid treatments to chemically pare down the excess skin. Additionally, custom orthotics or padding might be recommended to relieve pressure and prevent the recurrence of corns. In severe cases, a podiatrist may suggest surgical correction of the underlying bone structure that causes the friction. If you are struggling with foot corns, it is suggested that you visit a podiatrist for personalized and safe treatment. 

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact one of our podiatrists of Central Ohio Comprehensive Foot Care. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.
