CORNS AND CALLUSES
Diagnosis, Prevention And Treatment
Corns and calluses are actually the same thing: thick, hard spots of dead skin caused by rubbing and pressure. Take a closer look at your feet to see if you’ve got a corn or callus. Corns are on the tops of toes and other bony areas of the foot. You can see them by looking straight down at your feet. Calluses are on the side or bottom of your toes or soles. You have to pick up your foot or lean over to see them.
WHAT CAUSES CORNS AND CALLUSES?
The experts agree that the main culprit is shoes that don’t fit properly. Corns and calluses are your body’s protection from a process called hyperkeratosis (constant rubbing or pressure). Women who wear high heels and uncomfortable shoes in the name of fashion are common corn and callus sufferers. But corns and calluses may also appear if you have certain deforming foot conditions that affect how you walk, such as hammertoes or bunions. Even with supportive shoes, these bone deformities may chafe against your toes and form calluses
While corns and calluses are not generally dangerous to your health, they can be painful and rather unsightly
