Corns and Shoes

Tuesday, 29 November 2022 00:00

The development of corns on the feet can be an annoyance for a wide variety of individuals across the country. Typically this condition develops in response to the concentration of intense pressure or friction on the foot. The corn itself is made of thick skin. Importantly, there are steps that you might consider taking in caring for your corns. For example, wearing the correct kind of footwear can have a significant impact on the extent to which the corns are being taken care of. By wearing shoes that are ill-fitting, an individual can aggravate the corns. Instead, one might think about wearing shoes that provide the feet with sufficient space to move about in freely. Thus, by choosing to wear the right kind of shoes, a person can sufficiently guard against both the formation and aggravation of corns. If you think that you might have corns, contact a podiatrist today to learn more about what can be done to mitigate and treat the condition. 

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.
