Hello. Thank you for posting.

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 hardcore softens. This typically occurs between toes. If they are troublesome, see a foot doctor.
