Interdigital Corns in the Dancer

Corns and blisters between the toes of a dancer can be very painful. The cause is multifactorial:  moisture, friction and structure of the toes. Pain occurs when dancing but usually worse in demi-pointe. The most common location is between the 4th and 5th toes. Dancers will mistakably treat the toe lesions with either medication containing an acid or try to pop the blister with a needle.  Both treatments can result in worsening of the problem and possibly an infection.
