Patient Comments: Corns - Symptoms

Question:What symptoms did you experience with your corns?

Comment from: LA, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: March 07

I all of a sudden got what I know now to be a corn on my left foot. My doctor told me it was a wart the podiatrist told me was a callus now after researching it is a corn and extremely painful at times. I often get woken up from extreme throbbing pain in the morning. At times I am limping because of the pain as well but other times like now I have no pain. I have dug and dug at the corn trying to relieve my pain.

I have a corn between last two toes (small toe) I have been to see a podiatrist who has shaved off the corn many times and has given me many remedies but the best remedy I have found is toe socks that I wear to keep toes from touching. I bought mine online.

I am suffering acute pain on both of my feet, even after I removed one corn at the hospital. It keeps recurring and is very painful. It's on the part where much of the pressure is there while walking. I cannot run, and my walking looks like limping. I don't have any other health problems, but it is bothering me a lot.

Thank you so much to the Lady who suggested toe socks for the corns between my toes. I have actually been able to spend a day on my feet without pain, it works!
