Got Corns? How to Determine If Corns Are Causing Your Foot Pain

by Dr. Christopher Milkie

Our Fox Point, WI podiatrists see many patients who are unsure if the pain in their feet is being caused by corns. When corns form, they can make walking extremely painful. Corns, while not considered a callus, often form on or near callused skin. This can make it hard for you to tell the two apart.

The most common signs and symptoms of corns include:

Effective Treatment of Corns

While some corns can be eliminated using over the counter treatments, there are times when you should seek the advice of an experienced Fox Point, WI podiatrist. Corns very often form because of an underlying abnormality in the foot or gait. Because of this, it is important that a podiatrist look at your feet to determine the best way to not only treat the corn but the foot condition that is causing it.

Treatment options for corns and the underlying conditions causing the corn include:

Choosing the Right Fox Point, WI Podiatrist

While there are times when a simple removal of the corn prevents it from forming again, the majority of the cases we see are caused by a more pervasive foot issue. Hammertoes and bunions are examples of these underlying causes of corns.

Because of the complicated nature of some of these foot problems, our Fox Point, WI foot specialists believe that it is crucial that your podiatrist does not remove the corn and send you on your way. If an undiagnosed foot problem is causing the corn, it could also be affecting the way you walk and causing you pain and discomfort in other areas of your feet, ankle and legs.
