Corns / Calluses

Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. Corns usually occurs at pressure points typically bottom of the feet and side of the toes.

SYMPTOMS

  • Calluses – A patch of compact, dead skin anywhere on the body that is subject to friction
  • Corns – A compact patch of hard skin with a dense core, located on top of a toe or the outside of the little toe

CAUSES

  • Ill-Fitting Shoes especially high heel shoes as they put pressure on the toes
  • Running shoes without socks which causes rubbing or pressure

SOLUTIONS

  • Shoe selections: They should have a wide toe box — no pointy toes — and there should be space between the tip of your longest toe and the end of the shoe.
  • Wear shoes with socks to reduce rubbing
  • Insoles customized to your feet
