Pain and sensitivity, hard yellow skin in a cone shape. After 8 months infection set in on the corn and the whole finger was swollen and very painful. Blood is evident under the skin.

I got the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) in 2005 after the birth of my 1st daughter and I fell in love with it. I did have some cramping, but nothing major and it went away after a few days. It did take a couple months for my cycles to even out but once they did, I was able to know exactly when I’d get my period. And it only lasted 3 to 4 days max! It kept my moods in check and over all I just think it was one of the best things I did for myself. The only complaints were from my husband as he could feel the end of the string while being intimate but he didn’t let me know about it for a long time. I had mine in for almost 5 years and when I got it removed because we wanted another baby, I got pregnant about 2 to 3 months after I had it out. All in all, I loved it and am even thinking of getting one again even though my husband is sniped just so I can have the regular constant flow of hormones and be able to know when my period comes and only have it last 3 or 4 days again. My husband fully supports me too.

I have a soft corn in between my last two toes. This is not the first time it has appeared. I have been in serious pain now for over 6 weeks including shooting pains even without shoes on. I am unable to wear any covered shoe for more than ten minutes without pain, nothing seems to work, I have tried padding the areas without success. During my first visit to my general physician I was prescribed an anti-inflammatory tablet, but there’s no change. Now I have been prescribed a fungal cream, I’m still very sore and in agony!

My peripheral vascular disease started with cramps in my left leg that lasted for minutes, then hours and now days. I have big bloody blister; very bad trouble. I am seeing a vascular surgeon this week.

I am suffering acute pain on my right foot, even after I removed the corns three times at the hospital. It keeps recurring and is very painful. It’s on the part where much of the pressure is there while walking. I cannot run, and my walking looks like limping. I don’t have any other health problems, but it is bothering me a lot.

I have had a corn on the ball of my foot for a month now. I tried so many things to get rid of it. I have been to the doctor, he refuses to cut it out. They freeze it and it hasn't worked. I have tried pharmacy drugs and nothing has worked. It has now affected my walking because it hurts to put pressure on it.

My problem is a constant recurrence of callouses on the sole of both feet. I have gone to several podiatrists with little relief. I also have fungus on both of my large toes (at the sides) and at the tip of my two smaller toes below the nails. It is thick and has made my toenails dark. Doctors don’t seem to be able to help. I find it very difficult to get a soft pair of shoes, especially dress shoes with heels. I am desperate. I need some help.

I recently developed a corn on my right foot which gives me some pain. I’d like to know about medications to take and if there are certain treatments that work. I don't want an operation.

I am suffering some pain and excessive bleeding from a corn that has developed on the inside midde of the second finger of the right hand. There is no pressure. Is not responding to OTC corn removal pads or drops except to whiten skin and cause the corn to swell. Each time the corn bursts, there is a lot of bleeding and then it all starts over again.

My mother in law has corns on her toes on both feet, it’s been now 19 years she had lots of treatment done to get rid of her corns. Her corns got that worse now she can't even walk without wearing any soft pad shoes on the floor. I am doing some research right now so how she can get rid from these corns and walk properly.

I all of a sudden got what I know now to be a corn on my left foot. My doctor told me it was a wart the podiatrist told me was a callus now after researching it is a corn and extremely painful at times. I often get woken up from extreme throbbing pain in the morning. At times I am limping because of the pain as well but other times like now I have no pain. I have dug and dug at the corn trying to relieve my pain.

I have a corn between last two toes (small toe) I have been to see a podiatrist who has shaved off the corn many times and has given me many remedies but the best remedy I have found is toe socks that I wear to keep toes from touching. I bought mine online.

I am suffering acute pain on both of my feet, even after I removed one corn at the hospital. It keeps recurring and is very painful. It's on the part where much of the pressure is there while walking. I cannot run, and my walking looks like limping. I don't have any other health problems, but it is bothering me a lot.

Be careful to distinguish between a corn on your finger and a ganglion. I had what looked like a blister/corn on one of my toes and went to a podiatrist. Then I got one on my finger. It's a bulge of the fluid in the joint. Sometimes it is painful, but most of the time it is not. I have lanced the one on my finger and removed some of the fluid. It's better for a while but fills up again.

Thank you so much to the Lady who suggested toe socks for the corns between my toes. I have actually been able to spend a day on my feet without pain, it works!
