Understanding Corns, Calluses, and Cracked Heels

Corns and calluses are your body’s response to friction or pressure, forming thickened layers of skin to protect sensitive tissues. While corns are smaller, hard areas typically found on the toes, calluses develop on the soles of the feet, especially under the heel and the balls of the feet. Cracked heels, characterised by dry, flaky, and sometimes painful skin, can result from excessive dryness and pressure on the heels.

Causes and Risk Factors

These conditions often result from wearing ill-fitting shoes, not wearing socks, specific foot deformities, or occupations that require prolonged standing. Inherited skin types and aging can also make individuals more prone to developing these issues.

When to Seek Professional Help

While many corns, calluses, and cracked heels can be managed with self-care, certain situations warrant professional podiatric care, especially if you experience severe pain, inflammation, or if you have underlying health conditions like diabetes. Never attempt to remove corns or calluses on your own, as improper handling can lead to infections or further complications.
