Why Do Corns Form Between Toes?
These occur in the same manner as corns in high pressure areas. Corns between toes develop due to friction and pressure from adjacent toes and tight footwear, causing the skin to harden in response to the increased force. The corns can be removed in the same manner as ones found in other areas. Preventative treatment can also be provided via custom made toe spaces, footwear recommendations, toe socks, or additional paddings to reduce pressure. It is important to get on top of this early as if the pressure is too great it can create a wound and if the individual has some healing deficiency may lead to an infection or worse.
