Calluses and corns are caused by constant pressure or friction on an area of skin which causes the skin to form a hard, protective surface.
A soft corn develops in the same way, except that when sweat is trapped where the corn develops, the inside of the corn softens. These corns usually occur between the toes.
Calluses and corns are not caused by a virus and are not contagious. Calluses or corns that cause mild discomfort and are not red, swollen or painful, may be rubbed down with a pumice stone or emery board. Many people can do this themselves. It is best to soak your foot in warm water for 20 minutes to soften the thick skin before using a pumice stone or emery board.
Thereafter, use a moisturising cream to keep the skin soft. Medicated creams, pads, drops or patches are available from your local Life Pharmacy – your Pharmacist will be happy to recommend the best product for you.
