Removing this sole of foot corn was trickier than it looked!
(It didn't need as much wrist muscle action as this one though!)val) Enjoy!
It was very hard to differentiate from the surrounding skin. (They're usually obviously darker, even under hard skin)
You'll notice surrounding pale tissue. This was because the patient did a ton of walking and spent long hours in heavy construction boots.
It was also very small for this part of your foot — almost seed corn like.
Foot corns usually form near the end of a foot bone. This one was no exception; it was very near the third metatarsal toe joint.
It looked like a large amount of callus was on top of it overlying it. When I debrided it, I found it was easy to remove. I then had to dig down more by feel than anything (not easy with a phone in one hand 😂)
Anyway, eventually I found it and carved it out with a gouge blade! I also removed any remaining miniscule bits of hard skin and finished off with good foot cream to aid the healing process
(I always do this after corn removal) Enjoy!
