Various Types of Corns on the Feet

Corns, small and often painful thickened areas of skin, can manifest in different forms on the feet, causing discomfort and irritation. Hard corns typically develop on the top or sides of toes, forming dense and compact layers of dead skin. Soft corns thrive in moist areas between toes, adopting a softer texture due to increased hydration. Seed corns are tiny, often painless corns found on weight-bearing areas on the bottom of the feet. Vascular corns, appearing as a dark spot with tiny blood vessels, are less common but can be more painful. Understanding these distinct types of corns aids in their proper identification and subsequent management. A podiatrist can successfully treat any type of corn that may have developed. If you have a corn on your foot, it is suggested that you consult a podiatrist who can offer effective remedies and prevention techniques.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact one of our podiatrists of Bruening Foot & Ankle. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.
