Calluses and Corns

Calluses and corns are thick, benign, hardened layers of skin that form due to friction and pressure. 

Corns frequently develop on the tops and along the sides of the foot, in between toes and any weight-bearing areas. Symptoms are hardened, raised bumps that are surrounded by inflamed skin that can be painful when pressed. To prevent and treat calluses and corns, patients should wear properly fitting shoes and use protective pads. If corns and calluses persist, schedule an appointment with a physician at the Cleveland Foot & Ankle Clinic for trimming.
