• Callosities (Corns) Causes


The basic cause for corns and calluses is only one, too much pressure, usually in combination with some friction. Some of the common Corns and Calluses causes include:

1.  Footwear: The wrong footwear can create unwanted friction and cause corns and calluses, including

  • Tight footwear
  • High-heeled shoes
  • Loose-fitting footwear
  • Thin-soled shoes
  • Wearing shoes without socks

2.  Toe deformities: Deformities of feet such as hammer-toes result in uneven distribution of pressure on the feet and toes. Some regions receive increased pressure resulting in formation of corns or calluses.

 Causws of Corns and Calluses

3.  Gait abnormalities: An abnormal style of walking can cause increased pressure at different areas of the sole of the foot. People suffering from arthritis or other joint problems walk in a typical style, which can cause increased pressure at certain points and contribute as one of the Corns and Calluses causes.
