The bump between your toes is called a soft corn which can look like a blister or even an open sore. One of the best ways to treat a soft corn is to make sure your shoes fit properly. Our certified pedorthist can properly measure your feet to make sure the shoes you have are the best fit. Another important factor is to have socks that aren’t too tight, especially around your toes. If you sweat excessively, antiperspirants such as Mycomist will help greatly.
Even wearing a cotton or liquid absorbing sock will help you not sweat as much. Sweating will only make the condition worse. There are also pads that can help cushion the areas that are being rubbed in your shoe. Most importantly, you should see a podiatrist if you have this condition. Although there are conservative treatments, a podiatrist can take x rays and chose the best treatment plan for your individual condition.
