What are Corns?
Corns are thickened skin lesions commonly found on the foot that are circular or semi-circular in nature. These lesions are due to continuous pressure and friction on the skin, resulting in the skin becoming thickened or hyperkeratotic. This thickened skin can build up over time and become hard and painful, especially if located in an area where there is pressure.
What are Calluses?
Calluses are particularly developed in areas where the shoes may press against the skin, especially on the bottom of the foot over any bony areas.
