Corns and calluses are not the same.
Corns are areas of callus, which under further pressure develop a hard nucleus in the centre.
Corns can occur at any site, though Corns are most common on the foot (foot corns).
Calluses are also hardened areas of skin that are yellowish in colour and are predominantly seen on the heels or ball of the foot.
They are also commonly seen on the inside of the big toe joint or the outside of the little toe joint.
Unlike corns that are clearly defined on the skin, calluses tend to be a lot more ill-defined.
Calluses can be very large and develop many layers of hard skin.
