7 Causes of corns and callus on tip of toe

callus on tip of toeDo You have a Corn or Calluses?

It is unbelievable how painful they can make everyday walking when wearing shoes.

Corns and Callus are caused by pressure and friction.

These friction and rubbing creates hard skin as you walk,

A corn or callus can form on any part of your foot when pressure and friction occurs.

7 Worst Places TO get Corns and Callus On Your Feet…

  • Hard lump on Side of big toe
  • Corn on top of toes
  • Callus on tip of Toe
  • Metatarsal area/ ball of foot
  • 5th outside of toe (pinky toe)
  • In-between the toes -(soft corns)
  • Under the big toenail

The worst place i believe you can get one is a Corn is the Callus on tip of toe area.

This is because the tip of the bone of the toes is not weight baring,
and the skin is softer than the soles of your feet.

When you walk with every step the toes are pushed forward and the toe rubs and pressure is applied to your toes tip.

7  Causes of corns and calluses on tip of toe
  1. Check your shoes are they too small, narrow or tight.
  2. Do you wear socks with heavy stitching that is rubbing on the toes.
  3. Are your toes clawed or naturally bent so you grip the insoles to much.
  4. How long are your toenails? Long and thick toenails can make you walk with your toes curled.
    (read related post…best long handled toenail clippers for thick nails)
  5. Do you have a hammer toe? that is caused from a bunion.
  6. Are you a runner? and not wearing good quality running shoes.
  7. Do you wear steel capped boots for work?

Small, Narrow or tight shoes

cure corn on toeAll can cause your toes to rub in the end of the footwear and as you walk friction occurs and thats when a callus or corn will occur on the tip of your toe.

Heavy stitching in socks

Socks and tights normcorn on tip of toeally have heavy stitching on the seams within them

And this seam believe it not is one of the biggest causes you may have a  callus on tip of toe.

Clawed Toes/ Bent Toes

People often blame the common foot deformity claw toe on wearing shoes that squeeze your toes, such as shoes that are too short or high heels.

clawed toes treatmentHowever, claw toe also is often the result of nerve damage caused by diseases like diabetes or alcoholism,

which can weaken the muscles in your foot.

When you toes are clawed or bent you grip the floor as you walk so you are more like to suffer for a corn or callus on the tip of your toes.

Over Long Toenails

An easy way to solve your callus pain on your toes is if the cause of your callus on tip of toe is because of your long toenails.

Toenails normally need cutting 4-6-8 weeks, we are all different but those are the averages.

long toenails treatmentBut good regular toenail trimming you can prevent a callous or corn forming underneath the long toenails.

I often see patients who have neglected to cut their nails, often due to poor mental health and callus forms under the nails and grows into one big nail/callus formation.

Hammer toe

Hammer toes and mallet toe are foot deformities that occur due to an change in your muscles, tendons or ligaments that would normally hold the toe straight.

They can be caused from the type of shoes you wear, foot structure, trauma

corn on hammer toe

and certain disease processes can contribute to the development of these deformities.

Number one being a Bunion or Hallux Valgus

Hammer toe and mallet toe usually occur in your second, third and fourth toes.
Runners And Hikers

When you are running or walking a lot more than usual then extra pressure and friction is going to cause your feet to struggle.

If you like to do these sports then i would suggest you invest in the best footwear and socks to prevent not only callus corns and blisters.

But trauma to the feet like Plantar Fasciitis injuries, Swollen ankles and Arch Pain,

These three traumas are the most common injuries patients i meet who like to run and walk a lot.

A good read I would suggest you read from Switch Back Travel is

The Best Hiking Boots of 2017 .

Working In Steel Cap Boots Causes Corns!

Another biggie!

A lot of my patients work in jobs that involve wearing steel cap boots at work.

Its a must and they have no choice.

But Steel Cap Working Boots are renowned for causing thickened toenails, Fungal infections and Corns And Callus.

They cause so much trouble to your feet because they are not flexible they have no give.

So the foot is kept very rigid and often the boots are to wide and this causes your foot to slip and slide and friction and pressure ends up with sore painful toes.

Tips If you wear steel cap boots

  • Wear thicker socks
  • Use gel toecaps to protect the nail and tips of the toes
  • Have a change of footwear and only wear the steel capped boots when you have too.
  • Soak your feet in anti fungal wash
  • Add a thin insole if room permits

How to remove skin tags naturally at home without surgery

How to remove skin tags naturally,
Watch this video first before you choose to surgically remove your skin tags!

 

Do you have a Skin tags?

They can be so annoying especially on your neck or under your armpits.

I used to have several and i liked wearing necklaces and every time i did

they would get caught and pull on the skin tag making me winch and sometime the tags would bleed!

I decided to look into Skin tag surgery and i watched the above video!

And to be honest it put me off as it seemed very stressful and painful experience.

Instead i decided to look into natural treatments for skin tags a product and treatment plan,

One i could apply at home and one that wouldn’t hurt me or my skin!.

This is my findings which i hope will help you to choose the right treatment plan for your skin tags!

What is a Skin Tag?

Skin tags are small soft growths a=that are skin coloured that hang of our skin.

Often mistaken for warts they are harmless but can be annoying and catch easily.

Common places Skin Tags appear.
  • Neck
  • Armpits
  • Groin
  • Eyelids
  • Under breasts
What causes Skin Tags.

A skin tag is a build up of looses collagen fibres and blood vessels surrounding the skin.

Collagen is a type of protein found in our cells throughout our bodies.

Who is prone to Skin Tags.

Men and Women grow skin tags and often if you have poor health including diabetes or if you are obese you are more likely to have them.

Hormones can also cause skin tags so women who are pregnant or people with thyroid issues can also be prone to them.

Where do Skin Tags appear?

Skin tags often appear in the folds of our skin, like under our armpits or creases in our necks.

When the skin rubs together thats why if you are over weight you may get more skin tags as the skin rubs together (chaffing) around your groin or breasts.

Are skin tags warts

No, a wart or verruca are a viral infection and totally different.

Read related post here Natural wart and verruca treatments

How to remove skin tags naturally:  Best  Methods

How to remove skin tags naturally with out surgery or cutting them off.

Firstly you want to confirm you have a skin tag not a wart.

  • Skin tags are smooth
  • Skin tags are skin coloured
  • They appear knobbly and hang from the skin
  • They catch easily especially on the neck and groin

Skin Tags VS Warts

  • Warts are raised and look have a cauliflower appearance
  • Warts are painful and bleed easily
  • Warts are contagious and will spread fast
  • Body warts can be flat in appearance

Removing skin tags

If you choose to see your Doctor they may recommend skin tag surgery.

The skin tag is wither frozen or burnt of in clinic

This can be painful and may cause irritation to the skin for a few days and may also cause slight bleeding to the skin tag sight.

Sometimes the skin tag does not fall of in one treatment so multiple applications may be necessary.

Alternative Skin Tag Treatments

The two best alternative treatments i believe and have personally used include;

  • Using cotton or dental floss around the skin tag.
  • Natural Skin tag Oil That Shrinks the Skin tags until they disappear.

Applying a piece of cotton or dental floss around the skin tag does work!

But it can be tricky fixing the cotton in the first place so you may need some help!

Once in place the idea here is the cotton will cut of the blood supply to the skin tag and when it has 100% the tag will fall off naturally.

As the skin tag dies do not be tempted to cut it off with scissors as it will really hurt and you may get an infection.

Tests For Gout
  • A simple blood test (or multiple blood tests) to ascertain uric acid levels in your blood can be carried out by your Doctor. However, a blood test alone will not prove that an attack of joint pain is due to gout. ••

  • A more specific test is the analysis of the fluid in the affected joint. Fluid from the space between the joint is aspirated (removed through a needle and syringe) and then examined under a special type of microscope. The presence of needle-like, uric acid crystals confirms the diagnosis of gout.

Alternative products

If you are concerned for your nail health?

You may need to firstly treat the toenails or fingernails for fungus or bacterial infections .

When you apply nail varnish often the varnish suffocates the nails and this will discolour and you will notice the nails becoming

  • Thicker
  • Yellow
  • White Spots
  • Flaky

 

If your nails look like this i would highly recommend you read my blog post on what does toenail fungus looks like here:

Final Note

As a Foot Health Practitioner I am not really one to promote a tool that does my job for me!

But i can totally appreciate the Impact scholl velvet smooth nail care set will have in the audience it is promoted in.

Women in particular spend over £450 a year keeping their nails healthy and looking good at Nail Bars!

Read the report from the Standard here!

So for under £20 the nail care system is a good purchase financially and also it does what you need it to do too!

It Files and buffs finger and toenails down, smoothing rough edges , thinning thicker nails.

And leaves them polished and shiney and looking great!

The only one issue i may have with the nail care system and that is there is always a possibility a user may over use or hold the file heads too long in one spot !

This will not only hurt by burning but also damage the nail and the nail bed.

So be super careful if you purchase this product and read the instruction fully and if in doubt visit a Foot Health Practitioner to do the job for you like me !

Pretty much the only negativity about the Bracoo knee strap is that for some people they say the support rides up and migrates as they walk?

Of course the product will not suit everybody thats just life so if you struggle with a open brace support why not try a smaller knee strap like tennis player wear?

My final opinion on the Bracoo Knee Strap

I remember a few years ago i tore a ligament in my knee whilst trying to copy Jillian Michaels doing a work out lol!

Ok i should have known better then try in the first place!

I am very stiff and defiantly not flexibly and i remember two pure weeks of hell , feeling and being sick, by knee swelled huge i could hardly walk!.

And i so wish i had purchased a knee brace strap as i do believe it would have 100% stabilised my knee,

so i could walk and not be scared my knee was going to give out.

Im sure the pain would have been less too.

Instead i struggled on with hot and cold compressions and gels,

loads of anti inflammatory pain killers and even a tramadole which made me sky high!.

For the price of a knee support i now know i was stupid not to invest in one.

Don’t make the same mistake as me!
