Yes: Corns on the pinky toe are often caused by either a hammertoe or a twisted toe, both of which may require surgery to correct. On the conservative side, treatment may be as simple as evaluating your shoes or creating a pair of custom molded orthoses for your shoes.

Yes...: I would seek the care of an orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon. The cause of corns can be anything from poorly fitting shoes to something more serious. An orthopedic foot and ankle surgeon in your area can be found at aofas.Org.

Yes: I would see a podiatrist to have an exam and figure out the cause of the problem. Often there is a small underlying bone spur which can be easily remove.
