Frequently Asked Questions

What is Podiatric protective padding?

A variety of corn pads may be used to treat or prevent calluses and corns. Protective padding such as corn pads cushion the callus or corn or holds the foot and toes in a more comfortable position so that calluses or corns do not develop.

You can purchase protective padding such as corn pads in different sizes and shapes, or purchase sheets of material that you cut to fit your needs.

Moleskin is a soft fabric with a thin layer of felt attached to a sticky backing. It is used most often on the feet to protect the skin from rubbing against footwear or against itself. It can also help cushion the feet.

What are some types of corn pads that may be used for calluses and corns?

  • Toe separators, which keep toes from rubbing together. They are used to prevent soft corns.
  • Toe crest pads, which relieve pressure and friction and help prevent toes from rubbing together.
  • Toe caps and toe sleeves, which fit over your toe and protect the sides and tips of the toe.

If you have diabetes, peripheral arterial disease, peripheral neuropathy, or other conditions that cause circulatory problems or numbness, consult your doctor before trying any treatment for calluses or corns.

What are calluses and corns?

Calluses and corns are areas of thick skin caused by pressure or friction. They may cause pain when you walk or wear shoes. Calluses usually form on your hands or feet. They usually don’t need treatment. Corns have an inner core that can be soft or hard. Soft corns are found between your toes. Hard corns may form on the tops of your toes. Corns caused by poorly fitting shoes will often go away with the right size shoe. Corn pads can help relieve discomfort.

What causes calluses and corns?

Calluses and corns are caused by repeated pressure or friction on an area of skin. The pressure causes the skin to die and form a hard, protective surface. A soft corn is formed in the same way, except that when sweat is trapped where the corn develops, the hard core softens. This typically occurs between toes. Calluses and corns are not caused by a virus and are not contagious.

Repeated handling of an object that puts pressure on the hand, such as tools (gardening hoe or hammer) or sports equipment (tennis racquet), typically causes calluses on the hands.

Calluses and corns on the feet are often caused by pressure from footwear. Walking barefoot also causes calluses.

Calluses and corns often form on bunions, hammer, claw, or mallet toes, or on the bumps caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Calluses and corns on the feet may also be caused by repeated pressure due to sports (such as a callus on the bottom of a runner’s foot), an odd way of walking (abnormal gait), or a bone structure, such as flat feet or bone spurs (small, bony growths that form along joints).

How are calluses and corns treated?

Calluses and corns do not need treatment unless they cause pain. If they do cause pain, you can ease the pain by:

  • Wearing shoes that fit well and are roomy, with wide and deep toe boxes (the area that surrounds the toes).
  • A wider toe box keeps the toes from pressing against each other, relieving pressure on soft corns.
  • A deeper toe box keeps the toes from pressing against the top of the shoe, relieving pressure on hard corns.

Using protective padding while your foot heals, such as:

  • Corn pads
  • Toe separators.
  • Toe crest pads.
  • Toe caps and toe sleeves.
