What is a Soft Corn?
A soft corn is a kind of painful lesion, and a build-up of skin, that is typically found between the toes. Usually they will develop between the fourth and the fifth small toes, but it is possible for them to develop between any toes where pressure is applied from footwear or poor toe alignment.
Soft corns differ to hard corns in that they do not appear at the top of a toe, and the skin build-up will usually feel softer, warmer, and moister than a hard corn. When a corn begins to develop, it can take just a matter of weeks before they grow large enough to create significant pain and discomfort with walking.
Corns always come about from pressure. In addition to removing the offending, we can talk through your options to reduce the wear and tear on the skin for the future. Painful corns tend to escalate with time, becoming increasingly uncomfortable and can be prone to ulceration, breakdown and infection. Although painful, corns don’t have nerve or blood supply. It is the good skin underneath a corn that is reporting pain – much like a pebble in your shoe can cause pain without the pebble being able to feel a thing.
How Soft Corn Treatment Works
Early corn treatment typically involves relieving pressure on the toe. This might take the form pressure deflection, shoe modifications (padding) and a few other simple tricks and tips. However, if the soft corn has already developed into a problem, it will require professional soft corn treatment from the team at Walk Without Pain. As corns don’t have a nerve supply of their own, they can be cut out without the need for local anaesthetic.
