A corn is a localized thickening of the skin due to pressure. Corns often occur on the top of the toes where there is pressure from the shoes. However, they also occur at the sole of the foot and in between toes. Certain corns may become entwined with the nerves of the skin, these corns are particularly painful. Often corns develop a core which is often referred to as the "root" by patients.
Corns can be very painful, especially if there is inflammation and swelling around the corn. This condition is more prevalent in females as a result of wearing tight or ill-fitting shoes. Corns appear as white/ grey or yellow/ brown in colour, dependant on your skin type. Symptoms include pain and swelling around the corn and discomfort with direct pressure.
