These are known medically as hyperkeratosis .</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Unusually thick, top layers of skin – or keratin – is called a callus. These are often created wherever there is frequent rubbing or excessive pressure or working without protective clothing, like gloves. If attended to early enough, there is usually only mild discomfort.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Corns are a different story. They are small areas of thicker skin, formed on the toes and most often cause pain because they push against the bones.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>“<span class__equalto____cout__tj-companyname__cout__>__squarer__companyname__squarel__</span>“</strong></em> assists the patient in treating the corns and calluses with minimal discomfort.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Calluses and corns form as protective pads of skin in response to repeated friction or pressure. Causes include:</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__> Your podiatrist will explore the area to determine whether you are dealing with corns or calluses. To correctly diagnose the problem, the doctor will also ask about symptoms.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The doctor may need to use a scalpel to reveal the layers of skin growth to make sure that it is a corn or callus, rather than a wart .</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Most often, calluses and corns can successfully be treated at home with over the counter medications. In rare instances, minor surgery may be called for. If you are dealing with issues of circulation or diabetes, it is most important that you involve your medical doctor to avoid any serious infections.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Our doctors will suggest keratin-dissolving medication that help in dissolving calluses and corns more quickly. Severe instances of corns or calluses may require the experienced application of a scalpel to remove them. In rare instances of foot malformations that create extreme pain it may be necessary to surgically remove the corns.</strong></em></p>

<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>The medical term for the thickened skin that forms corns and calluses is <em>hyperkeratosis</em> (plural __equalto__ hyperkeratoses).</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Calluses and corns form as protective pads of skin, in response to repeated friction or pressure.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>A callus is an abnormal thickening of the top layer of skin, which is composed of the natural protein, keratin. Calluses can form on areas that are repeatedly exposed to friction or pressure, such as when working without protective gloves. They are usually painless or only mildly painful.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>A corn is a small, thickened area of skin that forms on the toes. Corns are usually painful because they press against the underlying bones.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Both corns and calluses can be treated at our podiatry clinic with minimal discomfort.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Causes include:</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Calluses—any activity that applies repeated friction or pressure to an area of skin, including:</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Lifting weights (hands)</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Using tools (hands)</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Playing a stringed instrument (hands)</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Running long distances (feet)</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Kneeling to lay carpet or tile (knees)</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Walking on hard surfaces without shoes (feet)</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Corns—any activity or condition that applies repeated friction or pressure to the toes, including:</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Wearing ill-fitting shoes</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Bunching of socks around the toes</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Wearing socks with seams that rub against the toes</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Foot abnormality causing a protrusion that rubs against footwear</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Our podiatrist will examine the skin area to determine whether you are dealing with corns or calluses. To correctly diagnose the problem, the doctor will also ask about symptoms, and may need to use a scalpel to reveal layers of skin growth to make sure it is not a wart.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Corns and calluses are easily distinguished by:</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Location—Corns usually only form on or between the toes.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Degree of pain—Corns are usually quite painful, while calluses are usually painless or only slightly painful.</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Usually, calluses and corns can be successfully treated at home with over the counter medications…</p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__><em><strong>Occasionally, minor surgery may be necessary. People with diabetes or circulatory problems should always see a medical doctor or podiatrist for treatment. Self-treatment may lead to severe infection in these individuals.</strong></em></p>
<p style__equalto____cout__text-align: justify;__cout__>Our doctors may suggest a keratin-dissolving medication that will help in dissolving calluses and corns more quickly. In severe cases, calluses and corns may need to be shaved off with a scalpel. More extensive surgery may be needed to correct foot deformities that cause extremely painful or debilitating corns.</p>
