What are corns and callous

corns

Corns and calluses occur as a result of pressure on the foot. Corns appear over a bony prominence such as a joint, and a callus usually occurs on the sole of the foot. Do not cut corns yourself and don’t use corn plasters or paints which can burn the healthy tissue around the corns. Commercially available cures should only be used following professional advice. Calluos can  be left if it does not cause pain or removed by a podiatrist.
