Corns of the feet and the different types

There are quite a few different types of corn that can affect the feet.

1. There are shoe corns that develop on the top and side of the toes from shoes that are too tight.


2. There are hard corns that develop underneath the foot from high pressure areas.


3. There are soft corns that predominantly affect in between the toes from where the bones of the toes touch each other and cause a very painful soft corn that looks white and rubbery.


4. There are seed corns that are genetic that are very very small and they look like they have been scattered across the sole of the feet and there are no bigger than the size of a pin head and actually very painful as they have in there is a touch to them.


5. There are bio mechanical corns also that develop underneath the foot usually from a dropped bone or an enlarged bone inside the foot.


So the podiatrist must first investigate what type of corn you have to advise what type of treatment will reduce or stop the corn from coming back.

      You can bring the shoes in to your appointment with the Podiatrist so they can check everything. They might stretch the shoes to accommdate your 5th toe or use silicone toe sleeve for protection or maybe do something different. Best wishes Dubai Podiatry Centre

    Is this hereditary? My mother had this and I also have it and also my brothers. Can it be fixed for any age? Will my children also get this? Thank you Bilal

      The structure of your foot can be hereditary so a plantar corn might be common in your family. See corns are hereditary too. Please come and see the Podiatrist for assessment and a treatment plan. Best wishes, Dubai Podiatry
