A corn is simply an area of hard, thickened skin that can occur on the top, between, or on the tip of the toes.
A callus is similar in nature, but is larger and usually occurs across the ball of the foot, on the heel, or on the outer side of the great toe.
Corns and calluses are often mistakenly considered a “skin” condition. They are actually the visible sign of an underlying “bone” problem.(www.footankle.com)
There are treatment options available for corns and calluses. For more information, please request a free consultation through our website or by calling 800-578-8521. The staff and doctors of South Coast Specialty look forward to hearing from you.
