In each of us, the little Cinderella grows whose shoes make it unique to the rest of the girls. Unfortunately, it has not happened to us once and for all to want to lose the magical shoe, not to be found by a prince, but because there are corns left behind no story of childhood ever spoke of.
What are the corns?
The corns are liquid vesicles that we most often encounter at the level of the soles. They are due to friction, which the body responds to by producing a liquid that will take off the superficial layer of the skin forming the base. Liquid corns are very painful precisely because of the pressure that is created inside them.
If the corns become red, yellow or surrounded by reddish areas, then it most likely means that it has become infected and you should consult a doctor.
Causes of corns
If we refer strictly to the legs, then we are talking about a number of conditions that favor their appearance, such as:
– wearing uncomfortable shoes;
– allergic reactions;
– excessive sweating.
Corns can also occur in other areas of the body, with different causes such as:
– burns are one of the most common causes of basics;
– viral infections such as varicella, shingles;
– allergies: contact dermatitis;
– wet heat;
– skin sensitivity to sun exposure;
– sexually transmitted diseases: herpes, genital warts can begin with the appearance of fluid vesicles.
The red and warm teguments precede the appearance of a corn. Over time, they will swell and collect fluid, becoming painful, due to tension. The location, the basics type, and their number depend heavily on etiology.
The process of healing a fluid corn keeps the skin regenerating, which will also lead to resorption of the fluid inside, which can take 3-7 days.
Signs of an infection are:
– changing the color of transparent liquid into reddish or yellowish;
– pain on touch;
– redness of the skin around the basics;
– the skin is warm and painful.
But if the cause of the corns is not obvious, additional investigation is needed through specific analyses because it may be the first manifestation of a systemic disease.
What is the treatment of corns?
The treatment of corns can be done by yourself, at home:
– it is best not to break the corn because the skin that covers it is a mechanical barrier against the infection;
– To protect it, you can cover it with a patch and protect yourself from moisture and heat;
– You can also use a local antiseptic to apply to increase anti-infection measures and ensure complete and uncomplicated regeneration;
If corns are in extremely painful areas that prevent you from doing certain activities, you can choose to break it. For this:
– you need to sterilize a needle by flaming it (you keep it under the flame until it turns red) or you can put it in alcohol;
– insertion of the needle is through a margin of the corn;
– Once wounded, we will evacuate the liquid inside;
– we do not remove the skin that covers the blister (it can still be a means of protection);
– we cover the skin with a dress that we will change every day;
Some Tips to Keep You Away and Prevent Corns:
– wearing socks in sport’s shoes when practicing intense exercise!
– avoid synthetic socks that do not absorb moisture!
– use gloves when handling irritating skin (detergents, solvents) or work longer with a particular tool!
– give up the uncomfortable shoes!
– do not forget the protective creams when you go to the beach!
– help the skin by using moisturizing creams!
– a rigorous hygiene of the legs prevents bacteria and, implicitly, infections!
– foot Talc powder prevents sweating!
