Corn - Frequently asked questions

What is a corn?

Corns are areas of thickened skin on the foot, which are often painful to pressure.

What causes corns?

Corns are caused by rubbing and pressure on bony surfaces, and usually result from poorly fitting shoes. The skin on the foot thickens as a protective response to pressure and friction.

How to treat corns?

Start by relieving and moisturising pressure points on the foot. This can be done by applying a plaster to cushion against rubbing and friction. COMPEED® corn plasters contain a special gel that helps remove the corn while providing instant pain relief.

How can I prevent corns?

To prevent corns, start by reducing pressure and moisturising your feet, especially if you’re going to wear tight shoes. Wearing a hydrocolloid plaster, such as COMPEED® Corn Plasters, can also reduce pressure while maintaining the natural moisture balance.
