Corns are small, localised areas of thickened skin, and can often feel like you’re walking on a pebble. It is important to get professional help to treat your corns, as it can lead to the more severe callus if left untreated.
At Birmingham Podiatry Clinic we can offer you a range of tailored treatments to help you return to a pain-free lifestyle.
Corns, like cracked heels, can be unsightly and hard to live with because they can be painful and irritating. We can help you treat them and ensure they don’t recur.
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.
There are multiple different types of corns, however all have similar symptoms:
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.
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.
