|The most common type of corn, known as hard corn, is found on the top of the toes, while soft corns are found between the toes.
There are many corn removal treatments you can try at home or with the help of your podiatrist before resorting to surgery. These include wearing properly fitting shoes, using silicone toe sleeves over the prominent toe bone to stop friction from occurring, and wearing orthotics to help correct any abnormal foot structures.
However, if these treatments don’t work, corns can become too painful to deal with. They can even become serious for some people. For example, a diabetic who develops are corn can develop a wound known as an ulcer and this can lead to very serious complications.
Surgery of foot corn is a good option. Once you are anesthetized (either by either IV sedation or local anesthesia), the surgeon will completely remove the corn and the underlying boney prominence. In some cases, an inflamed sac of soft tissue known as a bursa is encountered and is excised at the same time.

Corns are thickened areas of skin that develop as a result of pressure or friction on the skin, often caused by poorly fitting shoes or repetitive activities.
Here are some common treatment methods for corns:
Over-the-counter treatments: There are medicated corn pads, creams, and ointments available that contain salicylic acid, which can help soften and break down the corn.
Soaking and exfoliating: Soaking your feet in warm water for about 10-15 minutes can help soften the corn. Afterward, you can gently use a pumice stone or foot file to exfoliate the thickened skin.
Moisturizing: Applying a moisturizing cream or lotion to the affected area can help keep the skin soft and reduce the development of corns.
Proper footwear: Wearing well-fitting, comfortable shoes with appropriate cushioning and support can help prevent corns from developing. In addition, using shoe inserts or orthotics can help redistribute pressure on the foot and reduce the formation of corns.
Padding: You can use non-medicated corn pads or foam cushions to protect the corn and reduce pressure on the area.
If your corn is painful, infected, or does not improve with home treatments, it is important to consult with a healthcare professional, such as a podiatrist, for further evaluation and treatment. They may suggest additional treatments such as professional corn removal or custom orthotics.
Please consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice regarding your foot condition.
