Corns are known as areas of thickened skin that form on the feet from repeated pressure or friction on the skin. They can be painful and sometimes unsightly, located usually on the toes or on the top of the feet. Corns are typically mild and do not require treatment, as long as they are not irritating. Corns can become severe especially if you are a diabetic patient, have poor circulation or any other serious illness that can affect the feet. Changing your shoes or adding padded inserts in your shoes can help alleviate symptoms from corns. Your podiatrist can help reduce the appearance of your corns by shaving away the thickened skin.

If you have any concerns about your feet and ankles contact Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama will do everything possible to treat your condition.
