Corns and Calluses

What are corns and calluses?

Corns and Calluses is a thick skin on the foot which can become very painful to the touch. Corns and callus usually acquire on the bony prominences of the toes in response to ill-fitting shoes which causes friction (rubbing) on the skin.


 
Symptoms
  • Hard corns develop underneath the bony part of the toe and top of the smaller toes
  • Soft corns develop between the toes most common in the fourth and fifth toe. These corns are soft because sweat between the toes keeps them moist and can be infected
  • Pain whilst you walk, jog or run which affects your activities
  • Patients who are diabetic it is very important to check your feet regularly for any symptoms of corns and must consult their GP or visit a podiatrist to prevent further complications  
  • If you suffer from poor circulation it is advised to consult your GP or visit a podiatrist
Cause
  • Poorly fitting shoes cause friction (rubbing) which can develop corns
  • Fat on your feet can press against the shoe which rubs while you walk, jog or run
  • Bunions can cause corns and calluses
  • Claw or hammer toes can cause corns
  • Soft corns between the toes most common in the fourth and fifth toe. These corns are soft because sweat between the toes keeps them moist and can be infected
  • Hard corns around the bony part of the toe and top of the smaller toes. Most common on the top of toe due  to poorly fitting shoes
Treatment
  • Wear shoes that will accommodate your feet easily without causing friction
  • Using a pumice stone will help to reduce the thickness of the corn
  • Use corn removal solutions such as Imperial Feet Corns and Callus Solution
  • Foot creams may help improve corns such as Flexitiol Heel Balm
  • Wearing silicone insoles or pads will help with corn pain
Prevention
  • Avoid tight shoes
  • Purchase shoes with good ventilation
  • Use Flexitol Heel Balm to moisturize any corns and calluses
