Usually calluses and corns only become painful when they have grown too deep into your foot and are now irritating the soft tissue under the skin. As the picture above notes, these calluses can be like "gluing rocks to your foot", and can be multi-layered with variable depths with each layer.
A trip to a Podiatrist would help make the diagnosis of callus, blister, or wart (since many of these painful calluses are actually warts under the callus), and speed up the callus removal by weeks since they can use very sharp instruments, plus place appropriate padding in your athletic shoes to off-weight the painful area. Calluses: Calluses can develop on hands, feet, or anywhere there is repeated friction -- even on a violinist's chin. Corns and calluses form due to repeated friction and pressure, as the shoe (or ground) rubs against a bony prominence (bone spur) on the toe or foot.
After an initial history and physical exam of your feet, x-rays will be needed to tell the whole story and determine why corns and calluses are developing.
Make sure shoes are wide enough for your feet and have enough depth in the toe area to allow minimal pressure on the toes.
Corns and calluses almost always persist until corrective surgical measures are taken, so don't become discouraged if your efforts to prevent them are less than successful.
Don't just dream about pretty feet , let your therapist simply callus peel away the hard skin and calluses. Although results are seen after the first treatment, we recommend an initial course of 2-3 treatments every 2-3 weeks.
Callus Therapy uses fruit extracts and Shea Butter to soften and smooth rough, dry and cracked areas of skin.

Whether you are suffering from overly dry, cracked feet or simply want to keep them in peak condition to get the most from your pedicure, Callus Therapy has many uses!


It is the corn on top of the callus which is usually the most painful and bores deep into the skin, normally called "seed corns".
A callus is similar in nature, but is larger and usually occurs across the ball of the foot, on the heel, or on the outer side of the great toe. Calluses and corns quite often have painful nerves and bursal sacs (fluid-filled balloons that act as shock absorbers) beneath them, causing symptoms ranging from sharp, shooting pain to dull, aching soreness. Your doctor is the expert in trimming down these areas of thick skin and will often apply comfortable padding to these painful corns and calluses. A prescription custom-made device called an orthotic might be made to wear inside your shoes, to redistribute pressure more evenly across the ball of your foot.
Calluses are flat thickened areas of skin layers whilst corns are more localised small areas of callus containing a deep centre or nucleus that presses into the underlying dermis to cause pain.
For example, incorrectly-fitted footwear, biomechanical abnormalities such as over-pronation and over-supination, abnormal anatomy of the feet such as hammer-toes, bunions and other toe deformities. Calluses are given a daily dose of moisture and goodness that eliminates their tough consistency enabling natural oils to penetrate them more easily for a smoother feel and a much more even skin surface. You can get a deep blister, very painful, underneath the callus, and so deep that it is difficult to reduce. The common callus usually occurs when there's been a lot of rubbing against the hands or feet. X-rays will often be taken to identify the specific bone problem that is causing the corn or callus. Check their fit and discard any that have seams and stitching over painful corns or have worn out innersoles that offer too little protection for calluses on the ball and heel of your foot.
I started to get a callus on the ball of my left foot and that has now developed a corn on top of it.


A seed corn is a tiny, discrete callous that can be very tender if it's on a weight-bearing part of the foot. Often corns and calluses will have to be trimmed on a regular basis to prevent them from hurting.
You may be surprised, as are many people, that your shoes are actually smaller and narrower than your feet. Seed corns tend to occur on the bottom of the feet, and some doctors believe this condition is caused by plugged sweat ducts.
You can begin by soaking your feet in warm soapy water and gently rubbing away any dead skin that loosens. Eventually, you may desire corrective foot surgery by your podiatrist to straighten curled or contracted toes for corns or elevate and shorten metatarsals for calluses. For the past four weeks I have tried self medicating it with those pad treatments from the drugstore. Calluses develop under a metatarsal head (the long bone that forms the ball of the foot) that is carrying more than its fair share of the body weight, usually due to it being dropped down or due to its longer length.
Attempting to file off the entire thickness of a corn or callus can result in a burn or abrasion.
A poor choice of shoes can aggravate corns and calluses, but often it is not the "sole" cause. Non-medicated corn pads or moleskin (a thin fuzzy sheet of fabric with an adhesive back) can be purchased to protect corns and calluses, but should be removed carefully, so you do not tear the skin, and should only be worn for a day at a time.
