Corns have a hard centre and tend to develop on the tops and sides of your toes. Treatment for corns and calluses is the same. It involves avoiding the repetitive actions that caused them to form. Wearing shoes that fit and using protective pads can help.
If a corn or callus becomes painful, your chiropodist or podiatrist can provide help by trimming away excess skin or a large corn. Don’t try to do this yourself with a scalpel because it could lead to an infection.
