Dr.Manoj's Homeopathy Treatments For Corns
Corns and calluses are thickened layers of skin caused by repeated pressure or friction.
Causes, incidence, and risk factors:
Corns and calluses are thickened layers of skin caused by pressure or friction on skin. A corn occurs on the top or side of a toe, usually from shoes that do not fit properly. A callus occurs on your hands or the soles of your feet.
The thickening of the skin is a protective reaction. For example, farmers and rowers get callused hands that prevent them from getting painful blisters. People with bunions often develop a callus over the bunion because it rubs against the shoe.
Neither corns nor calluses are serious conditions.
