Corns & Calluses

Corns and calluses are thickened skin that builds up in areas of pressure or rubbing irritation.


Corns typically develop at the tops of the toes are due to contracture of the toes and their subsequent rubbing at the surfaces of the inside of the shoe.

Corns develop and the tops of toes, tips, and along the inside surfaces of the toes.


Calluses generally develop along the margins of bunions or underneath metatarsals. These can result from shoe pressure, but also occur under pressure points such as metatarsal bones.

Patients may actually present with joint pain, or metatarsalgia, due to overload of the metatarsals prior to any development of callus.
