Corns, calluses, bunions
A variety of bumps and lumps can occur on the feet, but what are they and what can be done about them? Of these, corns, calluses, and bunions are among the most common. Those with diabetes or circulation disorders should have their feet examined regularly by a podiatrist for these and other disorders.
What are corns, calluses, and bunions?
Corns and calluses
Thickened patches of skin, with a rough, dull appearance, are known as corns and calluses. Corns and calluses are the same thing but in different areas of the foot. Thickening on the bottom of the foot is a callus, while thickening on the top of the foot or toe is a corn. They become painful when too thick.
