CORNS

It is also known as HELOMAS. It is defined as a thick, localized area on the skin surface due to constant friction and pressure. They are circular and conical in shape, have dry , waxy or translucent in appearance.

Types:
1.Soft Corns- they are firm, flesh-colored, whitish and messy corns between the toes. This condition is especially common in women who wear high-heeled shoes with narrow, tapering toe boxes. 
2.Hard Corns- In many people, the toes curl downward and do not lie flat. The toes remain curled inside the shoe and press against the inside of the shoe, usually at the toe joints. Additionally, the tip of the curled toe presses against the sole of the shoe. The skin compensates for this added pressure by thickening at the point of contact and hard corns develop to protect the underlying structure.

Location:
1.Any of the foot but sometimes present in fingers.
2.Sole near ball of the foot
3.Outside of fifth toe.
4.Between fourth and fifth toe.

Symptoms:
1.Asymptomatic
2.Pain on walking due to constant pressure and friction.
3.Ulcers.

Treatment:
1.There are various topical methods for the treatment of corns like applicator, pad, plasters etc. All these substances remove the corn temporarily but the tendency remains. Homoeopathic medicines proved very effective in curing it, as they remove painful corns as well as the tendency for recurrences with the help of the constitutional medicine.

Prevention:
1.Tight fitting shoes must be avoided; comfortable shoes are useful.
2.Cushion pads between the toes are useful in preventing corns.
