Where Are Corns Located?

Tuesday, 28 February 2023 00:00

Corns are a condition of the feet that is primarily defined by hard layers of skin that develop in response to friction. Corns, importantly, are distinct from calluses. Many patients and novices to the field of podiatry often wonder where, exactly, corns can develop on the feet. The answer is slightly complicated. Corns are most commonly located on the soles, or bottoms, of the feet. However, they can also be found elsewhere on the feet. For example, corns can also be found on bony parts of the foot. This is to say that corns can be located on the toes, especially around the joints. You might also be most susceptible to developing corns wherever the skin is particularly thin. If you are someone that is concerned about developing corns on your feet, it is suggested that you contact a podiatrist today for more information. Schedule an appointment today.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact Dr. Steven Schwartz of Pennsylvania. Our doctor will treat your foot and ankle needs.
