CALLUSES AND CORNS — Calluses and corns (clavi) are among the most frequent skin conditions and, by virtue of their location on the feet, may be the source of considerable disability, discomfort, and pain. Calluses are a diffuse thickening of the outermost layer of the skin, the stratum corneum, in response to repeated friction or pressure (picture 2). Corns develop similarly, but differ by having a central "core'' that is hyperkeratotic and often painful.


Calluses and corns may go away by themselves eventually, once the irritation is consistently avoided. Corns typically occur at pressure points secondary to ill-fitting shoes, an underlying bony spur, or an abnormal gait.
This preparation may be useful for callous or corn formation that is too large for plaster use, but it is not useful for warts.
