What is a corn? Corns differ from Callous and are commonly mis-diagnosed as Planter Warts.
Corns occur in areas of friction or direct pressure and form a localised area of thickened skin ( A central core). Due to the thickenss in the skin in this area, pressure increases and causes pain. There are differrent types of corns but the most common are hard corns, Heloma Durum and soft corns, Heloma Molle.
Corns are easily removed by a Podiatrist and generally this is a painless procedure.
