If you are looking for a top-notch podiatrist, you will want to visit our podiatry practice, New York Podiatry Care. At our foot care practice, our podiatrist, Dr. Sarah Kim, can provide you with complete podiatric care including treatment of your corns 11561.
When you have corns 11561, they can be an extremely painful foot problem. They can make it impossible for you to comfortably wear shoes or walk for any long distances without feeling pain. However, if you have diabetes, it is especially important that you have corns treated in the early stages. If a corn becomes infected, and you have decreased blood circulation in your feet due to diabetes, it can become particularly difficult for the corn to be treated. When it comes to diabetic foot care, an ounce of prevention is certainly worth a pound of cure. Whatever your reason for wanting to have your corns treated, you should visit us at our podiatry practice. Sometimes a corn can be mistaken for a wart, or vice versa. Our foot doctor will be able to determine the exact cause of your foot pain, and treat it properly. Corns and calluses are basically the same, however, a corn will appear on a toe or on the top of the foot, while a callous will appear on the bottom of the foot. Most corns and calluses can be fixed by simply having a change in shoes, or by having our podiatrist trim off the corns. Sometimes, foot surgery may be needed in order to correct the situation. Our foot doctor may also provide you with moleskin pads which need to be properly positioned so that they can relieve the pressure on the corn. If a corn is infected, our foot doctor will be able to prescribe oral antibiotics for you which should clear up the infected corn. She may need to drain pus out of the corn through a small incision.
