It is said nowadays that nature provides a cure for just about anything, including foot problems. If you develop corns on your feet, for example, submerge willow tree bark in warm water for about thirty minutes, soaking your feet in the solution.

If ingrown toenails happen to be the case, then acorns are the solvers. Grind the acorns up, soak them in water, and then dunk your feet in for a surprisingly effective treatment. Finally, when it comes to blisters or lesions, apply crushed plantains or yarrow to the afflicted area, covering the wound with a bandage.

Although nature treats many needs, it doesn’t treat all of them, including injuries. If your foot or ankle is injured, see one of our podiatrists at Connecticut Foot Care Centers. Our podiatrists can treat your foot and ankle needs.

Corns: What are they? And how do you get rid of them?

Corns can be described as areas of the skin that have thickened to the point of becoming painful or irritating. They are often layers and layers of the skin that have become dry and rough, and are normally smaller than calluses.

Ways to Prevent Corns

There are many ways to get rid of painful corns such as wearing:
- Well-fitting socks
- Comfortable shoes that are not tight around your foot
- Shoes that offer support

Treating Corns

Treating corns involves removing the dead skin that has built up in the specific area of the foot. Salicylic acid can help in getting rid of these corns because it dissolves keratin, which is the protein that makes up a good majority of corns. Podiatrists recommend that people with diabetes not use salicylic acid but should consult with their podiatrist regarding the treatment of corns.
