There are a few different types of corns and calluses. A hard corn is a compact lump with a thick core. Hard corns usually form on the tops of the toes, on the outside of the little toe, or on the sole of the foot. A soft corn is a small, inflamed patch of skin with a smooth center. Soft corns usually appear between the toes. A seed corn is the least common type of corn. Occurring only on the heel or ball of the foot, a seed corn consists of a circle of stiff skin surrounding a plug of cholesterol. A plantar callus, a callus that occurs on the sole of the foot, has a white center. Hereditary calluses develop where there is no apparent friction, run in families, and occur most often in children.
Corns can be recognized on sight. A callus, which is often on the bottom of the foot, will not bleed, but will reveal another layer of dead skin.
Most Good Feet Arch supports feature a metatarsal rise that rests just behind the ball of the foot, lifting the foot and reducing weight-bearing pressure on the ball and toe area of the foot. This will allow the toes to spread and relax, dramatically reducing friction which can result in corns or calluses.
