Corns and calluses directory
Corns and calluses are areas of thick, hard dry skin that may develop on the hands or feet. Corns can be caused by wearing shoes that are too tight. Rubbing creates small circles of hard skin that can make walking painful. Calluses are rough, hard patches of skin that can develop on the heel of the foot, or on palms or knuckles of the hand.
