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.

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.

What is a soft corn between toes

Question of the day #askthefootpainexpert …Facebook

What is a soft corn between toes?


A Corn is a build up of skin caused by friction or pressure mostly from shoes.

A hard corn and soft corn between toes normally appears when you wear too tight shoes or boots,

Your feet are pushed and squashed together causing the toes to rub each other as you walk.

Its the action of movement and confined space in the shoes that cause corns to form.

Soft corn in between toes are SOFT because your toes are tight against each other,

The skin sweats and air ventilation between the toes is limited, this then causes the skin to become clammy and wet.

Soft corn photos

Soft corns between the toes look very different to hard corns which look like a circular hard pin head.

The white circle around the corn is wet sweaty skin and the callous is sunken.

Its the soft white skin that makes it so hard to remove the corn with a scalpel so hardening the soft corn always helps to remove it quicker.

How to treat soft corns

As a Foot Health Practitioner i must admit is hate soft corns they are trickier to treat then hard corns which are just lumps of hard skin.

The problems you face treating soft corns

  •  Getting access to the soft corn
  •  Removing the entire corn
  •  Preventing bleeding
  •  Infections

Home Remedies for treating corns

These are the best treatments i can recommend you try at home but you may need your partner or a friend to help!

  1. Compeed Gel Corn Plasters
  2. Animal Wool
  3. Gel Separators
  4. Corn Wraps
  5. Surgical spirit


Do you notice on my list i have not listed ACID CORN PLASTERS! which is what most people use when trying to remove corns.

This is because they cause more damage then good to the skin.

The plaster which contains salicylic acid is applied to the toe,

10 minutes later your feet begin to get warm and the plaster moves and you feel discomfort and burning.

This is because the corn plaster has moved and is now burning your healthy soft skin.

Easy Foot Callus Treatment Tips You Can DO To Achieve All Day Comfort?

This Foot Callus Treatment advice will help you define what type of corn you may have on your toes.

I would say that 85% of my patients call me initially because they need  corn removal is a big part of my business and keeps me busy.   Corns on toe pictures show how corns have common spots that they appear on the toes and are either hard or soft callouses.

I know from first hand experience how painful a corn can be and without the correct support and protection these hard callus on foot formations can have you crippled up in pain by the end of the day.

The Definition of a corn is : Thickened Skin caused by
friction and pressure.

Small circle in appearance hard skin i remember when i got a small corn on my little toe because i wore a new pair of boots which were a little tight and as i walked my foot rubbed into the boot and within 2 hours my toe was killing me i took the shoe off and the toe was red and inflamed and i could see a pin head corn. Me being me i carry micropore with me so i wrapped the toe up the best i could to get me through my night out.

I believe the worst types of shoes which cause corns
High Heels
Ankle Boots
Steel Capped Boots
Flip Flops

But at the end of the day any shoe new or old can form a corn if the shoe is too tight or too loose if friction and pressure occur so will a corn.

Symptoms of corns

Soft corns appear in between the toes and are very tricky to get rid of and can be painful.  These soft corns form when the toes are being cramped together by a pair of shoes and they are being squashed on top of each other. High heeled shoes or pixie toed shoes are normally the culprits for these corns especially if you wear these shoes for long periods of time.

Corns that form on the tip of the toes i personally believe are the worst types of corns. When your toes begin to claw over or arthritis begins the toes natural position changes so as you walk your toe tips are gripping the sole of the shoe and pressure and friction causes the tips which are not weight baring to form corns on the distal (tip ) of the phalanges bone.

If you suffer from a bunion (hallux valgus)  it is very common the get a corn on the bunion joint on the side and underneath the base of the metatarsal bone.  Normally a bunion causes the 2nd toe to form a “Hammer toe” which is due to the big toe pushing towards the lesser toes and the second toe become bent and clawed.  Hard corns form on the top of the second knuckle joint because the toe is raised in footwear and it rubs with each step. Very painful and usually impossible to cure totally.

5 Podiatry Tips for all day comfort

  • Be sensible wear comfortable shoes
  • Compeed plasters
  • Corn Wraps
  • Petroleum jelly (Vasaline)
  • Chiropody wool

 Sensible Shoes For Callus on Foot Problems

I know  who wants to be sensible, but if you squeeze your feet into a tight pair or mis shaped shoes for your feet corns will definitely occur. Pixie or pointed shoes will cause corns on the little toe and between toes to form.  High heels shoes will force the toes into the box area of the shoe and can form corns on the knuckles or tips of the toes.

Compeed plasters

corn of foot removal compeed

I love compeed plasters and they have a range for toes and corns and also blisters on heels.  Compeed plasters are a strong gel Hydrocolloidal plaster.
The range for bunions in my opinion aren’t as successful as they do not sit in the right place and fall off easily where the normal plaster style ones will stick in place and hang on for days if not weeks!. They are super soft and adhesive and for many patients a perfect product to prevent friction and pressure and stop callous and corns forming on their toes.

Hydrocolloidal plaster contains croscarmellose sodium (an internally cross-linked sodium carboxymethylcellulose,[27] water-soluble polymer), as well as gelatin[27]and tackifier resins.[28] Top level of plaster is made of elastomer (that ensures that the plaster stays on skin even while moving) and polyurethane film.[29]

When applied to the blister, it starts to absorb body liquids turning into a soft mass that cushions the blister. It seals the blister forming so-called “second skin”. The plaster doesn’t heal the wound. It prevents the blister from developing and helps new skin to grow underneath the plaster.

Cushioned zone created by the plaster relieves pain and protects the wound from rubbing. The plaster repels water, and stops dirt and germs from entering the wound, thus preventing infection.

At first the plaster absorbs all the moisture from the blister but over time it becomes more permeable so the wound dries out.[27] Unlike ordinary dressingshydrocolloidal plaster stays on the wound for several days and it stays on even in the shower.

How to use Compeed corn removal plasters

When i use compeed plasters on my patients for corns i get the patient to leave one plaster on for 3-5 days and then remove the plaster and reapply another if necessary.  When you pull the plaster of the adhesive plaster pulls out the corn and its corn leaving the skin smooth.

 A 6 pack costs £4/$7 very reasonable i believe.

Corn Wraps / Corn Sleeves

corn on foot removalPodiatry toe protectors which slide over toes to prevent friction and pressure.  The wraps are made of silicone medical gel and are covered by a mesh fabric which acts as a barrier between the shoes and the toes.

Corn wraps come in two sizes large and medium , the large would be for the big toe only.

The silicone gel part of the support sits on the skin and over the corn,  like compeed plasters these will precent friction and burning and prevent corns forming.  A great choice for hammer toes and soft corns in-between your toes.  These wraps often fall off the little toe and are harder to keep on but with socks or tights they are held well in place and a great tool to prevent corns on toes.

£2/$5 for a pack of two.

 

Vaseline  / Petroleum Jelly

Corns and callous on heels can be treated using vaseline , this deep greasy Unknownointment penetrates the hard rough skin and softens and naturally exfoliates corns and callous.  Try applying to your feet at night and wear a pair of cotton socks the heat generated fastens the process of softening and will leave the feet smooth and well hydrated.

Chiropody / Animal / Lambs Wool

A very old fashioned Chiropody method to solve corns and callous of the toes is chiropody wool. lambs wool is 100% wool so not good if you have a lanolin Unknown-1irritation.  It comes in a 25g roll and lasts ages. You cut a piece of the animal wool and wrap it around the toe and its corn or place in the shoes box area to protect the tips of the toes.  Animal wool prevents friction because it is coarse.  And although quite fluffy to begin with the wool will mould to your toes position and matt and can be reused.  Dancers have been using lambs wool for decades especially in ballet shoes as the tips of the toes have a lot of pressure applied to them and blisters and corns can form.
I use it on patients with bunions and hammer toes and it separates the two toes from rubbing together and stops and pain pressure and corns.
This is still one of my preferred corn on the foot removal techniques i use if my patients do not have a lanolin irritation or have trouble bending down to their feet.

Pack of Animal wool starts at £3.99/ $7 for 100g

I hope i have shared some valuable advice and information so you can prevent and cure corns and blisters on your feet.  Being sensible is really the major take away here. If you do get a corn make sure you change your foot wear whilst you are healing the corn and use a treatment that suits you.  You have several choices corn wrap, animal wool or using vaseline over night. Once the corn has gone the pain will go too.
