5 best Homeopathic medicines for corns

What are Corns

A corn is a localised thickening of the skin due to abnormal pressure or friction.  Corns on the soles of feet can be quite painful. They also hinder mobility. One is often forced to walk in a crooked manner to avoid putting pressure on the corns. For those who don’t know what corns are, it is important to understand in brief the cause and nature of corns.

What causes corns in feet or foot corns

Usually corns occur on areas that are devoid of hair and are smooth in texture. The soles of the feet are the most common areas that get corns. An ill fitting shoe is the most likely culprit.When excess pressure or friction is applied on a particular part, the superficial tissues try to protect the internal tissues. For this reason, they become a little hard and rough so as to form a protective layer. But this protective layer can itself become a cause of trouble when a pointed structure forms. This pointed structure presses over the internal surface when one walks and causes pain. In fact, pain while walking or standing is the only reason why patients seek medical care. Cutting off the corns with a blade is definitely to be avoided as it can cause infection. Moreover, chances of recurrence are high.

Non surgical treatment of foot corns

The usual medical advice that one gets for foot corns is to get them surgically removed. You go to a doctor and he will simply tell you to wear corn caps or to get the corn simply removed by the surgical method. Most of the patients act on this advice, because they do not know and do not try to know about other possible treatments for foot corns. Getting a surgery done for corns is not at all advisable because it does not offer any long term solution. In more than 70-80% of the patients, the corns recur. That is why it is not a good option to get the corns surgically removed. This is not something that I recommend to anyone.

Homeopathic treatment for foot corns – the best alternative or home treatment for foot corns

Homeopathy is the best bet for corns. You can easily cure corns with homeopathic medicines and avoid an unnecessary surgery.  In almost 2 decades of my practice, I have cured hundreds of cases of corns. None of my patients ever needed to get the corns surgically removed. In fact, so many patients who had got surgeries done earlier and were again reporting recurrence were treated successfully. The advantages of the homeopathic treatment for corns is that it is very easy to take. You can take the homeopathic pills on the go. These homeopathic remedies for corns do not have any side effects at all. At the same time, Homeopathy is economical and you do not have to submit yourself to the surgeon’s knife.

5 best Homeopathic medicines for foot corns

As mentioned earlier, I have successfully treated hundreds of cases of corns with Homeopathy. Based on my own experience in treating corns with Homeopathic medicines, I am here giving a list of 5 best Homeopathic medicines for corns.

The 5 best homeopathic medicines for foot corns are –

  1. Antim Crudum- best homeopathic medicine for corns

  2. Sulphur-best medicine for corns with burning

  3. Silicea-best medicine for corns that are soft and suppurate

  4. Lycopodium- best treatment for corns with pressing pain

  5. Ferrm picricum-best remedy for corns with yellow discoloration

This list is not an exhaustive list as there are many other homeopathic remedies which have the potential to treat and cure the corns. Giving the whole list and their indications is beyond the scope of this article. I am giving a short list for the sake of reference and brevity. It is necessary to take all symptoms of the patient in detail before deciding which homeopathic medicine will suit the patient the most.

1. Antim Crudum-One of the best homeopathic remedies for corns on the feet

It is one of the most commonly used medicines for corns. It is easily the most effective too. The soles of the feet are covered with corns. There is intense pain in the soles of feet and it makes walking difficult. There is aching pain in the soles and the corns. The corns are horny in shape and texture. The patient is mostly obese or overweight in build. At the same time, such patients are often fond of eating and tend to overeat.

2. Sulphur- One of the best homeopathic medicines for foot corns with burning

In cases where there is burning pain in the soles of the feet and also the corns, Sulphur is one of the best Homeopathic medicines for corns. The burning is more in the warmth of bed. Painful corns yield very quickly to Sulphur. There is profuse perspiration on the feet. The corns are inflamed causing pain, swelling and redness in the affected area. Pressing pain in the corns is quite common.

3. Silicea- One of the best homeopathic medicines for corns that are soft and suppurate

If the corns are soft to touch, Silicea is the best homeopathic medicine for corns. Usually the feet are sore and aching. There is profuse perspiration on the feet. The sweat is offensive. It is also very strongly indicated in any sort of pus formation that may accompany corns. The patient is usually chilly and does not feel comfortable in the winters. Usually the feet remain icy cold. There is offensive sweating on the feet. This may be an important pointer to the use of this medicine in the treatment of foot corns.

4. Lycopodium- One of the best homeopathic medicines for corns with pressing pain

There is aching pain in the affected area. There may be burning or drawing pain too but the most characteristic pain of Lycopodium is pressing pain. The heel pains as if setting foot on a pebble. Usually the right foot is involved. One foot is hot while the other is cold. The toes and fingers seem contracted.

5. Ferrum-Picric- One of the best homeopathic remedies for corns with yellow discoloration

In cases where there is yellow discoloration of the corn and the immediate surrounding area, Ferrum Picric is one of the best homeopathic remedies for corns. It is also indicated when the corns have resulted from an exertion or too much walking.

N.B Homeopathic medicines are very safe and do not have any side effects when taken under the supervision of an expert homeopathic doctor.
