The health of your feet can be compromised by a condition known as corns of the feet. Corns are a type of callus that can develop on the feet, and they are usually composed of dead skin cells. Corns typically occur as a result of pressure and/or friction being applied to an area of the foot. There are several different kinds of corns that may develop on your feet. For example, you may have hard corns, soft corns, or seed corns. In some cases, the corns on your feet may be causing discomfort and pain. While seed corns are not typically painful, for instance, soft corns can cause pain. If you have a corn, it is important for you to be mindful of any pain you feel. If the corn becomes especially painful, or if it is red and leaking liquid of some sort, it is a good idea to seek out medical attention as soon as possible. Podiatrists specialize in maintaining the health of the feet and are particularly equipped to help you with your corns. Therefore, if you are experiencing a significant amount of pain in your feet due to a corn, it is suggested that you contact a podiatrist as soon as you can, who will help you identify and address the problem.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact one of our podiatrists of Arbor - Ypsi Foot & Ankle Centers. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.
