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. They are caused by abnormal pressure or friction on the foot, the body’s natural response to this change in pressure is to build up a hard layer of skin to protect the underlying tissues. 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. Corns and Verrucae can have a very similar appearance, a good way to differentiate between them is by using the squeeze test.
