A corn is caused due to a localized thickening of the skin due to pressure. Corns often occur on the top of the toes where there is pressure from the shoes. However, they also occur at the sole of the foot and in between toes. Certain corns may become entwined with the nerves of the skin, these corns are particularly painful. Often corns develop a core which is often referred to as the "root" by patients. Corns can be very painful, especially if there is inflammation and swelling around the corn. This condition is more prevalent in females as a result of wearing tight or ill-fitting shoes.

Corns appear as white/ gray or yellow/ brown in color depending on your skin type. They are well circumscribed and may appear as large dots on the foot.

There are many causative factors the most common are tight shoes, deformed toes (hammer toes), seam or stitch inside the shoe which rubs against the toe, abnormality of gait (walking), surgery to the lower extremities and bunions.

"Hi there,

I just wanted to say thanks for sending me the bunion night splints. In my recent enquiry as to whether the night splints would rub on the bunion and cause it to enlarge, I am happy to say that this has not been the case. I have only been using the night splints for about 4 nights now but I think, and I don't think it's wishful thinking, I can see an improvement even though my bunions were quite small to start with. Anyway, I'm really happy and glad I purchased these, plus I wanted to say thanks for being the only website to provide an alternative to bunion surgery. The rest of the websites say that you either leave the bunions or have painful surgery but only in severe cases so I was worried about my unsightly bunions at such a young age but you have provided a solution that seems to work. I will keep you posted about the improvements, keep up the good work."
