What Are Corn Pads?

Tuesday, 15 November 2022 00:00

Corns of the feet can develop when a specific area of the foot is exposed to a significant amount of pressure or friction. Corns, thickened areas of skin, grow in response. There are many steps that an individual might consider taking to mitigate the effect that corns can have on the health of their feet. One mitigation technique to reduce discomfort from corns is known as corn pads. These pads are shaped like a doughnut and are meant to be adhered to the affected area, with the corn in the center hole. These corn pads are typically made of various materials, including foam and moleskin. Contact a podiatrist today for more information about how corn pads can help you.
