Why are soft corns painful?

by weqf

Surely they shouldn't be?


Soft corns or Heloma Molle are only found between something, i.e. your toes.

When you remove the corn it feels softer than the harder corns on the soles of your feet for example.

They hurt more because there is less "meat" and tissue in between toes covering the bones and joints which cause the corn in the first place, so extra pressure causes extra pain.
