Corns and callus

 

Corns

Corns are a very common and usually form on the tops, sides and tips of the toes. They develop from an accumulation of dead skin cells on the foot. They contain a cone-shaped core or nucleaus with a point that can press on a nerve below and cause pain.

Corns can be caused by wearing tight fitting footwear, high heeled footwear, tight fitting stockings and socks, deformed toes, or the foot sliding forward in a shoe that fits too loosely. Corns in between the toes can result from bony prominences

Callus

Calluses are caused by an accumulation of dead skin cells that harden and thicken over an area of the foot. Callus are the body’s way to protect the foot against excessive pressure and friction. Calluses are normally found on the ball-of-the-foot, the heel, and/or the inside of the big toe.

Calluses develop becuase of excessive pressure at a specific area of the foot. High-heeled dress shoes, shoes that are too small, obesity, abnormalities the way you walk, flat feet, high arched feet, bony prominences, and the loss of the fat pad on the bottom of the foot are all common causes of calluses.
