There is no inherent biologic difference between corns and calluses. Corns occur when sharply localized pressure develops over the narrow radius of the heads of the phalanges. More diffuse pressure, especially when it occurs over bone surfaces with less curvature or surfaces better protected by a connective tissue cushion, results in the formation of calluses. Corns and calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. They most often develop on the feet and toes or hands and fingers. Corns and calluses can be unsightly. After making the diagnosis of stress fracture, your doctor will tell you to decrease activity levels. You may either be instructed to wear athletic shoes or a stiff soled shoe, to reduce bending motions of your foot when you walk.
