Corns occur when toes rub against each other or skin is squeezed between your shoe and the bones of your feet. They can be hard or soft and although painful, options are available to ease the discomfort.
Corns are often caused by footwear, so try to ensure your shoes are comfortable and give your toes room to wiggle about. Other problems, such as how you walk, can also cause them. If corns keep appearing it's worth speaking to your GP, Podiatrist or Pharmacist.
Hard and soft corns are both caused when skin covering the bones of your foot presses up against the shoe, or when your toes rub against each other. The contact results in the skin building up a protective layer to stop the tissues of the foot from being damaged.
Scholl have a range of products to relieve the pain caused by the corn pressing against the nerves in your foot. Treatment can involve cushioning the corn or applying a treatment to reduce its effects.
The Scholl 2 in 1 Corn Express Pen treats up to 6 corns and is fast acting, providing visible improvement within 5 days.
