Who Can Develop Corns?

Corns can develop as a way to respond to pressure inflicted on the feet. For example, when pressure is applied to the feet, corns may develop. Corns are similar to calluses in that they are made up of layers of hardened skin. Many different people can develop corns. In fact, just about anyone can be susceptible to experiencing them, with the exception of babies who have not yet begun walking. Certain people can be at an increased risk of developing corns. These individuals include people who wear ill-fitting shoes. This is because ill-fitting shoes can be a source of pressure to the feet, causing friction and ultimately corns. Another group of individuals that are particularly susceptible to corns are those who frequently walk or run. If you find yourself falling into any of these categories, consider consulting a podiatrist today for more information.
