“Ouch” these Corns really hurt…

28years Pramod suffered from painful thickened skin on both the soles since 4months. He had participated in a Marathon 2 weeks before he started with this complaint. It 1st started on the right sole and then developed on the left sole. There was unbearable pain making it difficult for him to walk. He visited a Podiatrician and it was diagnosed as Corns on both the soles. He used corn tapes to get rid of the corns but it did not help and then underwent surgical removal but it recurred. Then he resorted to homoeopathic treatment and was given homoeopathic medicine after detailed case study. The corns had vanished in 3 months of treatment and he continued for another 3months with homoeopathic medicine. Till date corns have never bothered him again.

A corn is a small swelling, usually seen on the feet and hands; it basically comprises of thickened, dead skin. When the skin is subject to constant friction against another surface, the body naturally tries to protect the skin by thickening the area under friction. Over a period of time this thickened skin forms an area of tough hardened skin, mostly dead skin cells. Corns often crop up on pressure points and places that are subject to constant friction- the soles, the ball of big toe, in between the fingers and toes. Ill-fitting shoes, high heels, an abnormal bone structures are common triggers. They pressurize certain areas of the skin and lead to the formation of corns. Corns are generally present as hard growths that are pale or yellow in color. Deep pressure on a corn causes pain- this is why you often go “Ouch” if you step on it early in the morning while getting off the bed. Soft corns are slightly different; these develop between fingers and toes. Soft corns are more painful then hard corns, they hurt badly when the adjacent fingers or toes rub against each other. Many people try to remove corns by cutting it with a sharp instrument. This may worsen the condition resulting in unnecessary injury.
