Corns and Calluses

Corns and Calluses are frequently symptoms of other foot conditions. These common foot ailments are actually thickening of the skin, often caused by friction from within the foot- a bone protuberance, bone misalignment, or by friction from outside- shoes repeatedly pressing or rubbing. Calluses can be located anywhere on the foot but are usually located on the soles of the feet. Corns form on the toes or in between toes in which case they are called "soft corns". Never cut corns or calluses with any instrument, and never apply home remedies by yourself.
