The human body is incredibly adaptable, and corns and calluses are just one way your body defends you. While slightly different from each other, corns and calluses stem from the same root cause. They are both thick patches of skin that develop to protect you when the skin is subjected to excessive friction or pressure, but they can become problems themselves, particularly for diabetics or anyone with compromised circulation.
Did you know that not all corns and calluses are created equal? A corn or a callus can occur from a bone underneath the area, a wart or even a blocked gland or duct just to name a few.
Some calluses or corns can be treated non surgically and resolved permanently. Our doctors are pleased to discuss this with you in detail.
