I have had a Morton’s neuroma on my right foot and have been dealing with that for a couple of years now. I have been using a metatarsal pad to help alleviate that problem. Over time I believe my toes are shifting at the neuroma and now I have developed my first ever corn on my second toe next to my big toe. I am also noticing a hard spot on my big toe. Almost like some sort of callus but harder right where the corn rubs. Almost like a formation on the bone.

Excess body weight caused me to develop corns.

I have a corn under my foot about 2 cm under my small toe. I have never worn tight shoes or high heels I wear open sandals or takkies. I don’t know why I would get a corn! The doctor froze it once with hot ice but it is back. Today I dug it out, hope it stays away.
