Feet are our primary mode of transportation throughout everyday life, so it’s no wonder that with all the walking and running around sometimes our feet can have a negative reaction to their environment if not properly looked after. For many, “corns” are one of these symptoms. These patches of painful dead skin can erupt for a variety of reasons, including wearing ill-fitting shoes, foot deformities, and going commando in the sock department.
If you see what appears to be a hard patch of skin on your feet, it could be a corn that needs your attention. This is your body’s way of telling you that something isn’t right.
Luckily, there are plenty of ways to treat corns on the feet. Taking preventative measures is always a good place to start, but if you’re already experiencing corns then it’s imperative that you seek treatment immediately. There are many options available, including washcloths, medicated corn pads, and even podiatrists for more serious cases.
