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. Calluses on the hands can be treated by wearing gloves during activities that cause friction, such as gardening and weight lifting.
If an infection or ulcer occurs in an area of a callus or corn, unhealthy tissue may need to be removed by a health care provider and treatment with antibiotics may be necessary. The oil extracted from the outer shell of the cashew nut being acrid and rubefacient, is valuable in corns.
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". The hardness of the corn irritates the soft tissue under the skin which contains a rich supply of nerves.


If a corn is the result of a poor-fitting shoe, changing to shoes that fit properly will usually eliminate the corn within a couple of weeks. It should be placed on the corn and secured with a bandage and allowed to remain for two or three hours. However, this is little consolation if your corns, calluses, and bunions are causing your feet to look unsightly, or even worse, causing discomfort. 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. Below, you can find the common causes of these foot problems and treatment options that will give your feet the relief they need.


Seed corns tend to occur on the bottom of the feet, and some doctors believe this condition is caused by plugged sweat ducts.
For the past four weeks I have tried self medicating it with those pad treatments from the drugstore.
