Corns

Like calluses, corns are also areas of hard, thick skin. They’re usually made up of a soft yellow ring of skin around a hard, gray center. They often form on the tops of the toes or in between toes. Like calluses, corns come from pressure or repeated rubbing of the toes. Corns usually develop after wearing shoes that are tight around the toe area. Treatment of corns are similar to calluses and usually relieving the pressure takes care of the problem.

Corns take a little bit longer to go away. To help them heal, you can buy special doughnut-shaped pads that let the corn fit right into the hole in the middle to relieve pain and pressure. There are also pads that contain salicylic (say: sah-luh-sih-lik) acid, which takes off the dead skin to help get rid of the corn. If the corn sticks around for a while and keeps hurting, you may need to see a podiatrist (say: puh-dye-uh-trist), which is the fancy name for a foot doctor.
