Corns are hard, raised bumps on the feet that can be quite painful, especially while you’re walking. If you’ve developed corns, you can talk to a foot doctor about your treatment options. A podiatrist can carefully trim the raised area. Some people may try to do this by themselves at home, but this isn’t a good idea because it may lead to infections and other complications.
Watch this video or consult a foot specialist for more tips on treating and preventing corns. This video recommends switching your shoes if your podiatrist thinks that your footwear is the cause of your corns. Choose footwear that gives your feet plenty of room. Some people may also benefit from shoe inserts.
