The root cause

So where do we start when it comes to how to deal with painful feet issues like corns?

Firstly, what is a corn and what causes it?

Corns and their counterpart calluses present as thick, hardened layers of skin. It happens because your skin is trying to protect itself from rubbing and pressure which is often caused by shoes that don’t fit properly (particularly high heels in women), not wearing socks with your shoes, standing/walking/running for long periods or even physical hobbies, sports activities or even work that puts pressure on your feet.

Where will you find corns?

Most of the time you’ll find them in places like the tops and sides of your feet and between the toes.
