Corns & Calluses

Corns and calluses are areas of tough, thickened skin caused by pressure or friction.

Calluses usually appear on the palms, fingertips, or soles of the feet. Corns are smaller than calluses and form on the toes.

Symptoms of corns and calluses include:

  • A hard, tough area of thickened skin
  • Tenderness or pain under the skin

You may need to see Dr. Majewski if:

  • A corn or callus does not heal and is painful
  • A corn or callus tends to crack open and is a possible site for infection

Dr. Majewski will examine you. You may have an x-ray to see if you have any physical deformity that could cause a corn or callus
