Corns are a secondary condition that form as the result of repeated pressure on skin from another foot problem. When you have a bunion, hammertoe or other foot deformity, it causes footwear to rub and put pressure on a spot on your toe or foot. Over time, a corn may form. Eventually, the underlying problem that is causing the corn needs to be treated in order for the corn to be eliminated. Dr. Jill’s Foot Pads offer a number of solutions that can bring relief to painful corns.
Gel Corn Pads—a soft fabric sleeve containing gel inside is expandable and therefore easily stretches to slip over your toe. The gel provides cushioning which protects the corn and relieves pain. An added bonus, Gel Corn Pads release moisturizers onto the hardened skin to soften and relieve discomfort of the problem area. Our Gel Corn Pads are breathable and allow air to circulate. They are washable and can be re-used multiple times in all types of footwear.
All Gel Toe Tubes—these soft gel tubes are 4 ½ inches long and can be custom cut to any size needed. Also washable and re-usable, these tubes protect the toe and provide a barrier between the foot and your shoes. All Gel Toe Tubes come in 5 sizes to ensure a comfortable fit.
All Gel Toe Caps—one-size cap is designed to slip over the top of toes 2, 3, 4, or 5 (not the big toe). The All Gel Toe Caps insulate the toes against shock and pressure and they have a padded toe tip, which provides extra comfort. The gel slowly releases mineral oil to soften and moisturize the skin. These too are washable and re-usable.
The pad you choose will depend on the location and severity of the corn. You should never apply a gel pad to an open wound and pads should be removed for at least 3-4 hours each day to allow the skin to breathe.
