Treating Corns in Paterson NJ


Paterson NJ Corns

Corns on your toes can be very painful. If you are experiencing foot pain from corns, we hope you will visit us at our podiatric practice, Henry Slomowitz DPM. Our expert podiatrist, Dr. Henry Slomowitz, offers treatment for Paterson NJ corns.

If you have diabetes, and you have Paterson NJ corns on your feet, it is very important that you come into our foot care practice to have the corns removed. If a corn becomes infected, it can end up causing a serious foot problem for you. This is because many patients with diabetes have reduced blood circulation in their feet. However, if a corn is removed early before it can become infected, you will be avoiding a potentially serious foot problem. A corn is actually a callous that forms on the toes. The corns form because the bones push up against the shoes that you are wearing, and pressure builds up on the skin. When this occurs over a period of time, the surface layer of the skin begins to thicken, and the tissue underneath becomes irritated. Hard corns can usually be found on the top of a toe or on the side of the small toe. A soft corn will actually look like an open sore and can develop between the toes, if they rub against each other. The main cause of corns is improperly fitting shoes. If you have a toe problem such as a hammertoe or a claw toe, you may also develop a corn as a result. There are many at home remedies for corns such as soaking feet regularly and using a pumice stone. However, if you have long-lasting corns, or have diabetes, you are best off to come into our office so that we can shave off your corn. This is done with a scalpel while you remain in total comfort.
