Corns on the toes are common and can be very painful. Corns form in response to too much pressure on a small area, such as the top of the toes or ends of the toes. More often than not the pressure is due to the fitting of the shoes, but the shape of the toes and the presence of any toe deformity like hammer toes can also be an important factor. In response to this pressure, the skin thickens up to protect it self. This is a normal process. The problem in a corn, is that this pressures continues so the skin gets so thick that it becomes painful. The only way to permanently get rid of corns is to get rid of the pressure that causes it. Corns do not have roots. They keep coming back due to the pressure. There is no corn cure of medication for them.
