Do you have corns between your toes?

    Have you noticed painful corns between your toes?   In some cases it can be a simple callus but in others it can be a wart. The soft corn can appear anywhere on your foot depending on the unique architecture of it. They can be painful depending on your footwear. A corn that appears between your toes is known as a helloma molle.

    The causes of calluses and corns in your feet can be varied. In some cases it is due to your toe being a hammer toe or the bones in your feet oriented in a way that causes the calluses to grow. Treatment of this annoying condition can be something as simple as shaving the corn or padding, in very painful cases, surgery may be warranted.

     To treat corns that are in between your toes, it is usually a good idea to pad between the toes and keep your feet dry. Check your feet regularly for any change in skin appearance and please come visit us if you see anything abnormal.  A podiatrist is the only person that is trained in a specialized field in medicine for anything concerning the lower extremity, foot and ankle, that’s why it is important for you to visit your podiatrist if there are any problems concerning your feet or ankles.  If there you have any other questions feel free to contact Dr. Theall’s and Dr. Saleh’s Gentle Touch Foot Care office for all your foot and ankle needs and concerns at (973) 673 – 3668.
