Foot corns are rather painful but they can be treated effectively by using medications which can be bought over the counter. It is best to treat them as soon as they appear because the chances of healing are very high.
A foot corn is caused by the thickening of the skin due to excessive pressure applied on the same spot. The skin thickens up to protect from damages due to repeated pressure but then after some time you will start experiencing a degree of pain on the affected area.
Foot corns usually occur in between or on the outer part of the toes. In order to prevent their growth, it is vital that you avoid from any triggering activities. For example, you should avoid from wearing very tight shoes so that you can avoid any further pressure being applied on your foot. Tight shoes have the tendency to rub against your skin, and this applies more pressure. Additionally, when you avoid wearing tight shoes you are allowing your foot to breathe and this helps in the process of healing.
You can remove a foot corn permanently by using the Compeed corn plasters. All you have to do is apply the plaster on the affected area. The plaster contains a kind of gel that helps in removing the corn and reducing the level of pain. You need to change the plaster on a daily basis. Soon enough you will be able to eliminate the foot corn effectively without any pain at all.
