Corns and Calluses
Are an area of thickened skin, and it is usually caused by friction or pressure. Footwear is often a major problem and trying to get people to rethink which shoes to buy is very difficult.
There are other causes of callous such as a congenital problem (genetic) and acquired medical problems, such as thyroid deficiency and the menopause.
Corns are an extension of callous where the process goes further to make a hard dense area in the callous. This usually causes some pain as the corn forms a conical structure, the point of which is digging in to the underlying skin (dermis) which is where the nerve endings are.
Seed corns are found in dry skin caused by shearing stresses.
Corns and Callous conditions can be treated by a qualified Chiropodist / Podiatrist.
