Corn Excision

What is the corn removal treatment?

Corns and calluses are areas of stumpy skin which are caused by pressure or friction. They usually hurt when a person wears shoes or walks. corn generally develops on the person's feet or hands. Corns generally have a soft or hard inner core. Corns which are mostly found between the toes are soft corns, while corns form on the top of the toes are hard corns. Corns are mostly caused by ill-fitting shoes which get cured on their own by wearing the right shoes.

How is corn removal treatment done?

Corn removal treatment starts with a detailed evaluation of corn which is caused by excess or recurring pressure. Once the evaluation is done, doctors determine the condition of the patient and advise for the treatment. Many treatment options are available such as-

  • A salicylic acid-containing medical patch which is used for thinning of thickened areas.
  • In some cases, doctors may trim the corns depending upon the patient’s situation.
  • Good-fitted shoes are recommended to avoid this problem. Shoes should be padded and soft too.
  • The surgical process is also performed on some of the patients to rectify the alignment of bone causing friction.
