While they are similar in appearance, the two have some differences. Here’s some information about foot corns and calluses, including their causes, diagnosis, and treatment:
Corns are small, localized areas of thickened skin that typically develop on the tops or sides of the toes or the sole of the foot. They can be painful and may have a hard center surrounded by inflamed, tender skin.
There are two main types of corn:
Hard corns: are the most common type and appear as small, concentrated areas of thickened skin with a dense, central core.
Soft corns: Soft corns are usually found between the toes, where the skin is moist. They are more delicate and appear white and rubbery.
Causes of Corns:
Ill-fitting shoes: Wearing tight or poorly fitting shoes can increase pressure on specific areas of the feet.
High heels: Shoes with high heels or narrow toe boxes can squeeze the toes and lead to corns.
Foot deformities: Conditions like hammertoes or bunions can cause corns to develop due to the pressure or friction caused by the abnormal foot structure.
Calluses are more significant areas of thickened skin that develop on weight-bearing areas of the feet, such as the heels or the balls of the feet. They are usually painless and have a more diffuse skin thickening than corns.
Causes of Calluses:
Pressure or friction: Continuous pressure or rubbing on the feet, often from activities like walking or running, can cause calluses to form as a protective response by the skin.
Proper footwear: Wearing comfortable shoes with a roomy toe box and good arch support can help alleviate pressure and prevent the development of corns and calluses.
Padding: Placing protective pads or cushions over the affected areas can help reduce friction and relieve discomfort.
Salicylic acid: Over-the-counter salicylic acid preparations can be used to soften and remove the thickened skin. It’s important to follow the instructions carefully and avoid using them on open or infected skin.
Regular exfoliation: Gently exfoliating the feet with a pumice stone or foot file can help reduce the thickness of corns and calluses.
Moisturizing: Regularly applying moisturizer to the feet can help keep the skin soft and prevent excessive dryness.
Orthotic devices: In some cases, custom orthotic devices may be recommended to correct foot deformities or redistribute pressure on the feet.
Medical intervention: If conservative measures don’t provide relief, a healthcare professional may need to trim or remove the thickened skin using sterile instruments.
