Corn Removal

Corns are thickened dead skin that appears under the foot and in the areas all around the toes. These are mostly cone shaped and penetrate deep into the skin. While corns in the toe gaps may be soft due to the moisture, invariably it is hard in other places.

Causes

These are mainly caused by additional pressure or friction. In fact it is a sort of body mechanism that protects us against blisters. For instance, corns are visible in the hands of rowers, who does high pressure job through hands. This is precisely the reason, corn grows back even after we remove it.

Treatment

We as responsible doctors at Skinovate would like to insist the fact that self removal of corns is not a good practice. Especially, people with poor eye sight and diabetes should not attempt to clean their corns on their own.

Our dermatologist, after evaluating the area, follows the cautery procedure for corn removal. As the formation of corns are due to the basic reason of excess pressure, our dermatologists analyses all the factors such as

  • Improper footwear
  • Deformities in toes
  • Protruding bones
  • Improper style of walking
