If you happen to wear tight fitting shoes or tend to stand for the majority of your day, it’s likely that you may develop a foot condition known as a Corn. When frequent friction or pressure is put on the foot, a small, hardened lump may form in that area.
A corn may have a yellow hue and can typically be found on the side of the toes, as well as on the bottom of the feet. Though they are generally harmless, corns can often bring many patients discomfort. To help prevent yourself from developing Corns Ann Arbor patients should know that it is important to wear shoes that give your toes enough room to comfortably move around. Some patients may also find it useful to soak the feet with warm water, pat them dry, and apply a moisturizer. After practicing these steps over a period of time, the corn will most likely soften. Your podiatrist may choose to file the corn down. For more information and professional removal of your corn, we recommend you consult with a podiatrist for an advised treatment plan.
