Corns are very similar to calluses. They are thickened, raised areas of skin that can sometimes be painful. If you’re someone who is dealing with an unwanted amount of corns, our team at Great Neck Family Foot Care is here to help. We’ll let you know the common causes of corns and what can be done for treatment.
As previously stated, corns are areas of the skin where it has become thickened and raised. In most cases, they are caused by a specific area experiencing copious amounts of friction. More specifically, the below are all reasons corns can form:
- Wearing shoes that are too tight or too high-heeled.
- Walking barefoot regularly.
- Repeated actions, such as jogging or walking.
- Wearing no socks.
- Wearing poorly fitting socks.
