Calluses are toughened areas of skin that have become thick and hard as a response to repeated contact or pressure. Corns are specially shaped calluses that can be soft or hard, depending on the type of pressure and location on the foot. If you look at your own feet, the usual places you find calluses and corns are on the tops of your toes, the balls of the feet and the bottom surfaces of the foot and heels.

In the average person, as the three arches start to collapse and drop to the floor, the foot gets longer. This causes the toes to touch or rub on the end of the shoe. The increased pressure on the tops or bottoms of the toes and feet can then cause corns and calluses to form.

Symptoms of Calluses and Corns

It is important to seek a healthcare provider if you have any of these following symptoms:

  • Thick, rough skin in areas of constant contact
  • Dry skin
  • Bump on area of constant contact.

Causes of Calluses and Corns

Calluses and corns are caused by repetitive friction or contact to an area. This will cause the skin to die and produce a hard surface.

Treatment of Calluses and Corns

Calluses and corns can get progressively worse if untreated, it is important to treat it via:

  • Medication (consult a doctor).
  • Removing the callus or corn via tools.

Preventing Calluses and Corns

Some preventative measures include:

  • Avoid repetitive friction or pressure on a certain body part.
  • Wear comfortable clothing (ie. comfortable socks)
  • Use creams on the body.
