What are Corns and Calluses?

Corns and calluses generally occur on the foot when excess pressure is exerted on a specific area for a prolonged period of time. They develop into areas of hardened skin to protect against further irritation. Thickening on the bottom of foot is called a callus whereas if it occurs on top of it, it is called a corn.
Corns and calluses can become painful if it becomes too thick. However, they are not contagious. They may cause serious foot problems if the individual has diabetes or has decreased circulation.
