Corns on the feet is a prevalent problem that most people deal with at some point. Corn is a hardened, thickened skin on foot, usually in the shape of a circle. Corns which are less hard are referred to as calluses or callosities. These are usually formed as a result of excessive pressure on the feet due to prolonged standing or walking, or wearing ill-fitting shoes for a long time. Corns can be painless or painful. In some cases, I have seen foot corns get inflamed or start to suppurate (form pus) due to another infection. Homeopathic medicines for corns are a gentle, effective method to help get rid the of this problem. Antimony Crudum in particular a very good medicine that helps reduce the intensity of many symptoms of corns, and also helps treat the problem on a long-term basis.
