Corn foot treatment in kukatpally

Corn is the buildup of dead cells around the bottom of the toes. Corns form due to friction caused by using the wrong footwear and walking for an extended period, putting pressure on the toes and soles. They can form around the joints of hands, toes, between the toes, and heels. They are usually painless, and you can treat them at home.

Common symptoms of corn

  • Rough and hard patches of yellowing skin
  • Pain when wearing shoes
  • Flaky, dry, waxy skin
  • Hardened raised bumps
  • Pain when touched

If you have underlying conditions like diabetes and have symptoms such as pus, swelling, or redness, you should consult the doctor for their surgical removal.
