Heloma, is the hardened layer of thick skin that develops when a body part tries to protect itself against constant friction or pressure. They often form under the feet, on toes, inside the palms and on fingers. They are mostly found in athletes, people engaged in physical labour, and it is also common in middle-aged Indian women who work for long hours every day.
Heloma is widely known as corn, commonly known as corn is similar to calluses, but they are deeper inside the skin and have a hard centre, at times are painful. And this centre is often surrounded by swollen skin. They can be painful as well.
There are two types of corns, soft and hard. Soft corns form between toes and harder corns form on top of toes, the edge of the toes or the underside of the feet.
Corns form because of friction and pressure from repeated actions between skin and the surrounding surface. They are also found in people who have diabetes and issues with blood circulation
When you feel the corn is growing in your feet, soak your feet in warm water until the skin is soft and supple. Use a pumice stone or thick nail fail [emery board], wet it and rub the sine or the file gently on the corned area and remove the dead skin.
Maintain the motion and file it down. Don’t overdo the dead skin removal, as it can lead to infection and bleeding.
Apply a moisturizing cream or lotion with urea, salicylic acid or ammonium lactate in it — to the affected area, every day, as this will help in softening the skin.
In Indian drug stores, donut-style adhesive pads, shaped like bandages with circular padding, are easily available. They go by various names like corn caps, decorns, corn bandages etc.
A person suffering from corns doesn’t need a prescription to buy them. But these pads are not a long term cure, they are a temporary solution. They curb the immediate growth of the inward skin and remove the corn after a week or so.
But if our habits and practices don’t change, the corns are bound to come back in a few months.
If you or anyone you know is suffering from painful corn and calluses, it might be an issue with genes or bone deformities developed over the years.
Indian middle-age women are much more prone to developing corns and calluses because of hours they spend working on their feet. Hence, make sure, that they are well rested and are wearing proper shoes or gloves when they are working. The best way to cure corn and calluses is by taking precautions.
