CORNS - DESCRIPTION


Corns are a defensive reaction of the skin, that is, according to medical science, corns represent minor irregularities on the foot. However, they can be very painful and cause a lot of discomfort when moving, and they are not even pleasing to the eye. Corns are caused by too much pressure on the feet, for example due to too tight or inappropriate footwear. If your skin is under constant pressure, it will react by forming hardened skin that will turn into corns with a hard environment that presses deeper against sensitive skin and then pain occurs. If the cause that causes them is removed, the corns recede on their own.


SELF-HELP MEASURES

- Wear comfortable and foot-appropriate footwear
- Avoid high-heeled shoes
- Walk barefoot more often
- Put your feet in the bath every day to soften the skin, and then rub it with a pumice
- The salicylic acid patch softens the corns and removes them together with the root in a few days
- Encourage better blood circulation in the legs with baths to make the skin more elastic
- Remove thickened skin with a foot stone
- An old home remedy for corns is to smear them with garlic or marigold ointment
- Never try to remove deep corns with scissors or a knife


REMARK
