What Are Foot Corns and Calluses?
Foot corns and calluses are both areas of thickened skin that develop on the feet as a result of friction, pressure, or other types of irritation. Both can be caused by poorly fitting shoes, certain activities, or the way you walk. However, there are some differences.
Corns are typically small and round, with a hard center and a surrounding area of inflamed skin. They often develop on the ball of the foot or on your toes. You can also get a corn on the bottom of your foot. This can result from excess pressure on a specific area of your foot.
On the other hand, calluses tend to cover a larger area and be equally thick across the entire callus. While corns tend to be more painful, both can cause discomfort, making it difficult to walk comfortably.
How Are They Treated?
Sometimes, you may not need to treat calluses. However, if your corns and calluses are causing discomfort, it's essential to reach out to a qualified Chiropodist like the ones at Qureshy Foot & Orthotic Clinic. Depending on your symptoms, we may debride or trim the affected skin, use padding to redistribute pressure and apply medicated topicals or creams.
We may also recommend custom-made orthotics or shoe inserts or changes to footwear or daily habits. Our treatments are generally minimally invasive, and most patients have excellent outcomes.
