Callus

Corn

A corn (callus) is a thickened, hardened area of skin appearing as a yellow-grey wart-like growth. They are caused by repeated friction, pressure or other irritation over a period of weeks or months. Rapid rubbing during a period of a few days or less will cause blisters rather than allow calluses to form. Calluses are generally not harmful, but can be painful

Corns are not infectious. Warts, which can look similar to corns, are caused by a virus and are infectious

Calluses are most often found on the feet, caused when a prominent bone presses against the inside of a shoe. The pressure causes the skin to thicken at that point, creating a corn which penetrates deeper into the foot. It can feel painful and like you are walking with a stone in your shoe. Avoid high heels and shoes with narrow toes, and wear thick socks

Players of stringed instruments (guitarists, violinists etc), cyclists, weight lifters and others frequently develop corns on their hands, and in many cases the callus provides some necessary protection
