This corn on the bottom of my foot hurts so bad. Please help me!!?

IPK

Extremity-foot
What it sounds like is you have a painful IPK or intractable porokeratosis. These are very punctuate calluses that form in areas of acute pressure on the bottom of the foot. See your Podiatrist to get rid of them. Do not cryofreeze as this makes them bigger. What I suggest and has worked best in my practice is use of blistering agents I use a mixture of canthartin podophyllin and salcylic acid

Dr. Mak Yousefpour answered:

How do you get rid of corns on the bottom of your feet?

Reduce pressure

Corn_alergy
Calluses (not corns) occur on the bottom of feet usually due to pressure or from clogged sweat glands. See a podiatrist and that way the cause can be treated. Depending on what is causing them, there are surgical and laser treatment for removal of them. You can also use emollient exfoliating creams with Uric Acid to help.

Dr. Oliver Wang answered:

Can a corn be on the bottom of the foot hidden under 1 toe?

Yes and no

Corn_allergy
Corns are caused by pressure on bony prominences. This is possible if the corn is located on an area that gets lots of pressure. If the lesion is in the crease of the toe, it could be a wart instead. Warts are viral infections caused by puncture wounds. Warts are more painful than corns especially when compressed from side to side. Seek a foot specialist or dermatologist for help.

what is a hole like thing on the bottom of my foot?

Need to see!

Poro
An inverted follicular keratosis (upside down seborrheic keratosis) is highly unlikely given the location. You could have a solitary wart that has become cystic (verucous cyst) or more likely a porokeratosis which is a callus (keratoma) that occurs within a sweat gland on the bottom of the foot . Regardless it needs to be seen to make the correct diagnosis.

wat is a hole like thing on the bottom of my foot it hurts and turns white when i take a shower?

Plantar wart?

Diabetes
No diagnosis can be made without seeing you and examining the lesion. However, painful lesions on the bottom of the foot that turn white from water being absorbed are probably plantar warts. Depending on other issues, history of diabetes, etc. it could be serious lesions, an abscess, an inverted corn, even skin cancer, believe it or not. Please see a dermatologist or podiatrist!!!
