When patients present with corns on their feet, it is important to examine the underlying cause of the condition. Corns are often caused by an underlying osseous deformity, such as hammertoes or bunions, that puts pressure on the skin and causes it to thicken and harden.

The first step in treatment is to carefully debride the corns, removing the thickened layers of skin and reducing pressure on the affected area. Conservative treatment options may include the use of topical medications like urea, changes in shoe gear, and the use of orthotics to redistribute pressure on the foot.

If these treatments fail to provide relief or the corns persist and become painful, surgical intervention may be pursued to address the underlying osseous deformity. Surgery for corns may involve the realignment of the bones in the foot or the removal of bony prominences that are causing pressure on the skin.

Dr. Lilly Khavari and her team at Carrollton Foot Center are experienced in the treatment of corns and other foot conditions. They provide personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient’s specific needs and goals. This may involve a combination of conservative treatments like debridement, medication, and orthotics, as well as surgical intervention if necessary.

It is important for patients to seek medical attention for corns or other foot conditions as soon as possible to prevent the development of more serious complications. With early intervention and expert care from Dr. Khavari and her team at Carrollton Foot Center, patients can expect to achieve the best possible outcomes and improve their quality of life.
