What are Corns?
Corn is a type of skin condition that affects the feet and toes. It’s characterized by thick, yellowish patches of skin that form on the toes or soles of the feet, often accompanied by pain. Foot corn can be caused by friction between the toes and shoes, ill-fitting shoes, or even walking barefoot in unsanitary places. Over time, this friction can cause hard corns to form which can be quite painful when stepped on.
