At Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads, we know that patients who have a corn are most concerned with getting relief from the pain and discomfort they cause. However, corns are a sign of an underlying condition that must be corrected in order to eliminate the corn by eliminating the source of the problem. Corns often develop on the feet of patients who suffer with a toe deformity such as bunions, hammer toe or claw toe. These disorders force the toe into an unnatural position that usually ends up creating friction between shoes and skin that is pressed up against or rubbing on the shoe. Over time, this causes inflammation and results in the thickened lesion on the skin with a hard center. Another common cause of corns is improperly fitting footwear. Your Podiatrist will be able to determine the reason for the corn and also prescribe the correct treatment. The products below will help bring relief in the meantime.
Self-Adhesive Gel Corn Pads—off-loading pressure from the corn is key to providing pain relief. Our Self-Adhesive Gel Corn Pads have a center aperture which goes over the corn and surrounds it with a soft, gel cushion which protects the sore area and creates a barrier between the skin and your shoe. These pads are washable and re-useable.
Gel Corn Pads—specifically designed for corns that form on toes, the Gel Corn Pads consist of a soft, fabric sleeve that contains gel inside and stretches to fit over the toe. These expandable pads place a cushion between the toe and footwear. The pads are breathable and also release moisturizers onto the hard skin to help soften and relieve discomfort of toe corns. Available in two sizes: Small/Medium for toes 2, 3, 4 and 5 and Large/Extra Large for big toes.
Gel Skin (Gel Moleskin)—this product comes in sheets that you can custom cut to make any size or shape. Soft gel with a durable, stretchy fabric top cover, adheres to skin to cushion and protect. Gel Skin is latex free.
