A corn is an area of skin that develops in a circular shape and is often found on the bottom of the foot or between the toes. It typically forms as a result of excess friction that can come from wearing shoes that do not fit correctly. Additionally, a corn can develop on the inside of the heel from existing medical conditions that can include flat feet. Hard corns can develop on top of the toes or on the sole of the foot. A corn that is found between the toes is referred to as a soft corn and can cause pain and discomfort. Relief may be found when the feet are washed and dried thoroughly, and it may also help to file the corn with a pumice stone.

Genetics may play a significant role in developing this ailment, in addition to eating foods that are high in purine levels. Symptoms that many patients experience can include swelling, severe pain and discomfort surrounding the big toe, and it is often difficult to walk. It is beneficial to avoid eating foods with elevated purine levels. These include red meat, shellfish, and drinks with a high sugar content. Gout attacks can be managed with proper medication, and positive lifestyle changes. If you are prone to gout, it is strongly suggested that you are under the care of a podiatrist who can offer treatment solutions.

What Is Gout?

Gout is a type of arthritis caused by a buildup of uric acid in the bloodstream. It often develops in the foot, especially the big toe area, although it can manifest in other parts of the body as well. Gout can make walking and standing very painful and is especially common in diabetics and the obese.

People typically get gout because of a poor diet. Genetic predisposition is also a factor. The children of parents who have had gout frequently have a chance of developing it themselves.

Gout can easily be identified by redness and inflammation of the big toe and the surrounding areas of the foot. Other symptoms include extreme fatigue, joint pain, and running high fevers. Sometimes corticosteroid drugs can be prescribed to treat gout, but the best way to combat this disease is to get more exercise and eat a better diet.

The uncomfortable condition that is known as cracked heels can cause difficulty in walking and wearing shoes. They are described as deep cracks, or fissures in the heel of the foot, and bleeding may occur in severe cases. There are several reasons why this condition may develop. These can include frequently wearing shoes that have an open back, or standing for long periods of time. Additionally, existing medical conditions such as psoriasis or eczema may cause the skin to become dry, and cracked heels may develop. Research has indicated it may be beneficial to drink plenty of water, as this may help the body to stay hydrated. If you notice your heels are dry, it is suggested that you seek the counsel of a podiatrist who can recommend the best treatment options for cracked heels.

If the skin on your feet starts to crack, you may want to see a podiatrist to find treatment. If you have any concerns, contact Dr. Steven Stanton from CyFair Family Foot Care. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

Cracked Heels

Ways to Help Heal Them

  • Invest in a good foot cream
  • Try Using Petroleum Jelly
  • Ease up on Soaps
  • Drink Plenty of Water

Ways to Prevent Cracked Heels

  • Moisturize After Showering
  • Skip a Shower
  • Keep Shower Water Lukewarm
  • Don’t Scrub Your Feet

If you are unsure how to proceed in treating cracked heels, seek guidance from a podiatrist. Your doctor will help you with any questions or information you may need.
