A callus is an especially toughened area of skin which has become relatively thick and hard in response to repeated friction, pressure, or other irritation usually found on the bottom of the foot. Calluses are generally harmless, and treated by a stone to grind it down and reduce irritation. Corns are specially-shaped calluses of dead skin that usually occur on thin skin surfaces and form when the pressure point rubs in an elliptical or semi-elliptical path. The treatments for corns are similar to that of calluses.
