Corns and Calluses

Calluses and corns are areas of thick, hard and dry skin on the feet that can be painful.

Calluses can be caused by excessive pressure on the foot or wearing shoes that are too tight. Corns are typically found on the ball of the foot and the outside of the foot where shoes rub.
