What is the difference between a corn and a callus?

Your feet experience many different forces and can develop many different conditions from them. Some of the most common developments include corns and calluses. However similar they may be, they are two different things. In either case, they form as a defense against rubbing and pressure. The differences between are corn and callus are as follows:

Corn – These typically form on parts of the body which do not bear any weight. This means you will commonly see them on the top and side of your toes. They also form with a hard center surrounded by swollen or inflamed skin.

Callus – These growths most commonly appear on the weight bearing surfaces of your foot. This means you will typically find them on the sole or ball of the foot. When compared to corns, they are often bigger in size.

These conditions are not a major problem and present little harm to the body, but if you experience pain, you should visit our office.
