Callus and corns

Calluses are areas of thickened and hardened skin on your foot that are caused by rubbing against the bony areas of the foot. Poorly fitting shoes, bunions or incorrect foot positions during walking may all cause calluses. They are commonly found on heels, in the ball of foot area but also on your toes or between your toes, which are called corns or soft corns, when located between the toes. Corns may become painful if they grow inwards and put pressure on the underlying tissues and nerves. Soft corns, the corns between the toes, may become painful if they thicken and harden.

Treatment

  • You can prevent the development of calluses and corns by wearing properly fitting shoes that don’t rub against your skin, avoiding high heeled shoes or thin soled shoes. You can also use shock absorbing insoles inside your shoes to shift the position of your foot.
  • Use foot files and stones to remove thickened callused skin.
  • Do not cut away corns but instead use toe caps, toe tubes and ball of foot supports to help with painful corns.
  • Remember to moisturize your skin with good foot lotions to soften the skin.
  • You can bathe your feet to soften the skin. Using a foot file after a foot bath is very effective in removing calluses.
