Duration of Corns on the Feet

Corns can develop on one’s feet as a protective mechanism against friction or pressure. Corns typically have a dense core at the center, and they come in different types (hard corns and soft corns). Many individuals living with corns on the feet will not notice any symptoms associated with their condition. Others, however, might experience pain or irritation when walking. Patients with corns on the feet often wonder how long this condition typically lasts. Although it can vary from case to case, corns could be a long-term problem if nothing is done to address the cause. For instance, if you continue to wear ill-fitting footwear that rubs against your skin, this can exacerbate the emergence of corns. Additionally, if you can not correct problems in your gait that subject specific parts of your feet to friction or pressure, this can increase the risk of developing corns. If you have corns, it is a good idea to contact a podiatrist today for treatment.

If you have any concerns regarding your feet and ankles, contact one of our podiatrists of Harlis Family Foot and Ankle. Our doctors will treat your foot and ankle needs.
