Corn Foam Cushions have a dual layer of foam, designed for cushioning and pressure relief for corns. The bottom layer has a low density, making it soft and comfortable. The top layer is denser and firmer to help absorb pressure and protect tender areas.
Corns occur when toes rub against each other or skin is squeezed between your shoe and the bones of your feet. They can be hard or soft and sometimes painful, options are available to help ease the discomfort.
Prevention: Corns are often caused by footwear, so try to ensure your shoes are comfortable and give your toes room to wiggle about. Other problems, such as how you walk, can also cause them.
If corns keep appearing it's worth speaking to your GP, Podiatrist or Pharmacist.

Q What are corns? A A corn is a thickened area of skin that is caused by pressure or friction over a bony part of the foot. They can cause pain if the corn presses on a nerve. They look like small lumps of hard skin and usually form on joints but can also form in between toes.
Q What are the common causes of corns? A Corns are usually formed if there has been pressure or rubbing in particular areas on the feet. This can happen due to:
Wearing ill-fitting shoes
Wearing uncomfortable shoes
Not wearing socks
Spending too much time on your feet or walking/running
Q Why do corns hurt? A Corns appear on your feet when your body is trying to protect your feet from pressure or excessive rubbing. Corns can become painful when they are pressing on a nerve and rubbing constantly against a surface. If a corn breaks or forms a cut, this could lead to infection.
Q How can corns be treated? A Changing shoes so they are better fitting is a key way to help treat corns. Wearing special corn cushions, removal plasters or gel plasters can help ease any pain or pressure on your feet caused by painful corns. You can also soak a corn in water to help soften it and regularly use a pumice stone to remove hard skin. You can also seek help of a specialist who may sometimes remove the corn. Please see a podiatrist or doctor is you have diabetes, heart and circulatory problems, if the corn is bleeding or is infected, if the pain is severe or it hasn't improved after self-treating for 3 weeks.
Q What is the difference between a corn and a callus on your foot? A Corns are smaller, concentrated parts of hard skin, whereas calluses are formed over larger areas on your feet.
Q What is the difference between a corn and a wart on your foot? A A corn is a small lump made up of hard skin that is formed from pressure or rubbing on your feet. Corns are not contagious. However, warts are caused by a virus infection that has entered the skin through cuts or other openings. Warts are contagious.
Q Can corns heal on their own? A It depends on the size of the corn and how it appeared there. Treatments may help the corn from getting any worse or cause you pain. You can help the recovery of a corn by resting your feet, wearing comfortable shoes and avoiding walking or standing too much.
Q What do corn plasters do? A The Scholl corn plasters are designed to relieve your feet of pressure and pain caused by corns.
