Calluses & Corns

The term callus commonly is used if the thickening of skin occurs on the bottom of the foot, while corns are usually found on non-weight bearing areas.


  • Callus are often due to chronic pressure and/or friction.
  • Mild calluses rarely cause symptoms but they can become tender if they thicken or split.
  • Corns are often small but are also commonly tender with pressure to the area.

Treatment often focuses on preventing friction and pressure.

  • Insure footwear fits well and does not add extra pressure to the site.
  • Procedures may be needed to correct underlying bony abnormalities.
