Do you need help removing painful corns from your feet?
orns are one of the most common foot problems, estimated to affect up to half of the population at some point in their lives, and can be painful and unsightly. They’re a small area of very hard, thickened skin and are often described as feeling like the sufferer is walking on a pebble.
Treat painful corns safely
If left untreated, corns can lead to development of more severe calluses and at their worst, they can limit your mobility and ability to wear shoes. However, treating corns yourself is not advised as you can hurt the healthy tissue around the corn or even injure yourself while trying to remove them.
Similar to cracked heel formation, corns are caused by excessive pressure being applied to an area of the foot, for example with ill-fitting footwear.
This causes hyperkeratosis (hardening of the skin). This is the body’s defence to protect the underlying foot structures, however, it still causes pain due to pressure being applied to the nerves underneath.
As opposed to the hassle of using over-the-counter corn rings and treatments, we can offer rapid and effective treatment to permanently remove your corn.
We can immediately restore full foot function, tailoring your treatment based on the type of corn involved.
There are multiple different types of corns, however all have similar symptoms:
Feels like walking on a pebble
Small area of hard skin, for example between the toes
Discomfort which prevents particular movement
Enucleation is the treatment for corns. It involves the use of a scalpel to remove the corn. A salicylic acid patch may also be used to remove the excess skin. After care is just as critical as treatment to prevent corn recurrence – We can offer you expert advice for this.
