“Corns and calluses are often related to pressures in the foot,” Ambassador for Australian Podiatry Association Christina O’Brien tells Starts at 60. “We see corns and calluses as sometimes occurring as a pattern as to how that person might be walking.” Corns can also form when people wear shoes that don’t fit properly. For example, shoes that are too big can cause rubbing, while some designs cause extra pressure in certain parts of the foot. Similarly, a callus can also develop in areas of the foot where skin rubs against something, be it footwear, the ground or even bone.

“I definitely wouldn’t recommend any home surgery on corns or calluses because I’ve heard horror stories of people using razor blades and things to try and get rid of them and that’s just awful,” O’Brien says. “The best thing to do would be continually to dry your feet really well after your shower and moisturize your feet.”
