Calluses are thick, hardened skin that has developed due to pressure and friction. They mainly occur in high impact areas such as our feet, toes and heel. Calluses are rarely painful, however if left unattended, or if you have diabetes, they can result in much more complex issues.
Corns, similar to calluses, are thick hardened skin lesions, however they have a small centre of condensed skin which is usually very painful. They also occur in areas of high pressure and are sometimes hidden under calluses, making it hard to self-diagnose and recognise.
Corns will be enucleated and cut out, resulting in an instant relief of pain and pressure.
