Foot Pain and Corns

Corns on the feet are a condition that is similar yet distinct from blisters. Essentially, corns are hardened layers of skin that can form in response to friction or pressure on the feet. Many patients often ask podiatrists to what extent pain can be felt from corns. The answer is complicated, because typically, many people do not feel pain in the beginning stages of developing a corn. However, if a corn becomes more severe as time passes, it may become uncomfortable. When the corn becomes irritated, it often increases the level of pain. In these situations, treatment can be sought to remedy the corn which may bring mild relief. If you are someone that is currently suffering from corns on the feet, it is suggested that you contact a podiatrist today for more information.
