What's The Cause Of Corns And Hard Skin?
Patients often present complaining of sore corns. Corns are a very common foot problem and the good news is that they can be easily removed by a podiatrist. Now for the bad news. Unfortunately that whilst corns can be easily treated it is no so easy to stop them from coming back.
The problem is that corns form in response to pressure, That pressure can result from a number of factors such as the way we walk, from joint changes associated with aging or they can be caused by footwear. Any time the skin takes too much pressure it basically doesn’t like it very much and so lays down more skin to try and protect itself. This process eventually leads to the formation of a corn.
