Calluses and Corns

Medical Considerations for Calluses and Corns

Corns and calluses typically are not serious conditions unless you have diabetic neuropathy or other circulatory problems. However, always talk to your doctor if you have soreness, pain, redness, swelling or other indications of problems in any area of the foot that persist for more than a few days.
