Medical Procedures for Foot Corns

Corns, which are hardened skin areas caused by friction, can be treated through various methods, but it is important to know that they will not disappear overnight. Conservative treatments involve reducing friction by changing shoes and trimming toenails properly. These are often effective in resolving corns. Surgical removal is reserved for severe cases when other treatments fail, and it is not recommended to attempt this on your own due to the risk of infection. Whether or not you should remove a corn depends on its impact on your daily life and overall health. Mild corns that do not bother you can be left alone, while severe symptoms may require podiatric evaluation, especially if you have conditions such as diabetes affecting foot sensation. Surgical options, cortisone injections, or podiatrist-assisted shaving are available for severe cases, with specific aftercare instructions. If you have a bothersome foot corn and symptoms persist, worsen, or interfere with your daily life, or if you have underlying health issues, it is suggested that you schedule an appointment with a podiatrist for more advanced treatment.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact Manisha Mehta, DPM of Detroit, MI. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.
