Corns and calluses often develop on the feet and can cause pain and discomfort when walking.
The main cause of corns and calluses is excessive pressure. Footwear which rubs the foot or if you are a runner, sportsman / woman etc. involved in high levels of activity, corns and calluses develop due to the pressure caused during movement. The response from the skin is to produce hardened parts of skin which then form into either corns or calluses.
If corns and calluses are left untreated the hard skin will continue to build up and become more painful.
Additionally, if the causes of the corns and calluses on your feet i.e. the pressure, are not removed the corns and calluses will not get better and may well return even after treatment.
