Read on to find more about corns and calluses.

Causes

1. In some cases, corns or calluses may form due to improper walking motion but in most cases, corns and calluses form due to wearing shoes which fit in an improper manner.
2. High heels, in particular, are a major reason for the formation of corns and calluses. Other reasons include foot deformities or wearing shoes and sandals without socks.

You can do this to get rid of corns soak your foot in warm water. Make sure the corn is fully submerged for about 10 minutes or until the skin softens. File the corn with a pumice stone. A pumice stone is a porous and abrasive volcanic rock that's used for sloughing away dry skin. Apply lotion to the corn. Use corn pads.

You have corn and need to use corn caps or do laser therapy .Soak your feet in warm water and use a pumice stone or callus file to reduce corns and calluses. Gently move the stone in a circle or side-to-side to remove dead skin. You can do this in the shower too.
