Health Tip: Protect Your Feet From Corns06/01/11
(HealthDay News) -- Corns are calluses on the toes that develop
when the toes rub against the inside of shoes.
Causes include poorly fitted shoes, deformities of the toes and
socks that don't fit properly.
The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons suggests how you
can help prevent corns:
- Make sure shoes aren't too tight or too loose.
- Kick off the high-heeled shoes, in favor of those that put less
pressure on the front of the foot.
- Make sure stitches and seams inside the shoes don't rub against
- Wear socks that fit well.
