Corns form on the feet and can hurt when a victim is walking. They are thick skin layers that harden as the affected area is exposed to more friction. Alternately called helomas, corn on feet appear dry and waxy. They also look like conical lesions limited to a small area. If left untreated, a corn can become very sensitive to the touch, making it impossible for you to wear shoes that press on the sick areas. Commonly, these lumps form on the ball of the foot or the metatarsal arch.
They also form on the five toes of your foot although they tend to pick on the small one. On this particular toe, hard bumps that are sensitive to the touch form on the outside, on the top part or on the skin which is benefit the nail. All these types of bumps that you can effortlessly notice on your friend's feet or yours are called hard corns or heloma durums. Sometimes the friction caused by tiny shoes when you are walking or running can cause the soft corns.
These are the other common types that normally grow between two toes. As the victim walks or runs, the two lumps rub each other and that is why they are often white and are ugly to look at. Also called heloma molles, a soft corn can easily catch a bacterial or fungal infection, as they look succulent, tender and open. Typically, these bumps also form on the parts of the feet where bones are prominent or deformed. Some of these abnormal bones can be corrected by the right doctor. If they can not be corrected, the doctor would normally recommend the right orthopedic shoes to wear.
The people who suffer from toe deformities should wear the right shoes meant for a person who has mobility issues. Even if your dresses are perfectly normal, you should always buy the right shoes in terms of size. Small shoes act as a catalyst for the formation of calluses. Another thing you can do to protect your feet is to examine the inners of the footwear you come across. Make sure that there are no hard parts inside the pair of shoe because they can press your skin in a way it can not withstand. If you like the kind of footwear that puts your whole foot under pressure, then you can use pads or cushions.
Put them above and between the most vulnerable toes. Some of these foam pads have holes in the middle for preventing an even distribution of friction. Always buy footwear that is thickly padded on the inner parts especially the insole. Cushions create timeless comfort and relaxation even when one is walking. Corns on toes are not life threatening and should not really be removed through surgery. There are many corn removers in the market that can replace the painful surgical process. Also, even if you undergo surgery and keep pressuring your foot the bumps can form again on the same areas.
