Toe Corn, as the name suggests, refers to a specific-shaped callus of dead skin occurring on thin skin surfaces like on the dorsal toe surface, and fingers. Common causes of corns and callus include footwear that is too small or tight, toe abnormalities such as clawed or hammer toes, bony prominence’s such as bunions and poor foot mechanics when walking or running. A corn is a thicker, more focal area with a central core which usually forms over a bony prominence such as a joint – they are almost always painful.


Use of these types of remedies can be very risky in those with poor circulation or diabetes and is not recommended. Do not try to cut away corns and calluses yourself, they can be removed safely and painlessly by a podiatrist with immediate relief.
In case there is continuous tissue stimulation emitting the corns even after the corn is removed through surgery, the skin continues to grow as a corn. Corns and Verrucae can have a very similar appearance, a good way to differentiate between them is by using the squeeze test.


Reducing rubbing motion as well as the pressure can prevent from torn corns to form, by way of taking certain precautions, such as wearing well-fitted shoes, or using protective pads or skin dressings.
