Paul never thought he would have a corn on the foot, likely from dancing with the wrong shoes. After fighting the corn for months, it was time for a little foot surgery and voliz, instant relief!
Did You Know? – A corn (or clavus, plural clavi) is a specially shaped callus of dead skin that usually occurs on thin or glabrous (hairless and smooth) skin surfaces, especially on the dorsal surface of toes or fingers. They can sometimes occur on the thicker palmar or plantar skin surfaces. Corns form when the pressure point against the skin traces an elliptical or semi-elliptical path during the rubbing motion, the center of which is at the point of pressure, gradually widening. If there is constant stimulation of the tissue producing the corns, even after the corn is surgically removed, the skin may continue to grow as a corn.
We ate lunch at the Yucatan Grille as it was downstairs form the doctors office and then we headed to the movies. Between the foot and the remainder of a cold, we stayed home from Alpine this evening.
