Although corns and calluses are most common on the feet, they can also occur in other places. Corns are also called corns or clavi called. Callus is called callus, keratome, poroom or tylose.
What is Hammer Toe?
Hammertoe is a deformity of a toe, in which the end of the toe is bent downward. Hammer or claw toes arise because the muscle, ligaments and tendons that bend the toe often grow stiff from being forced into a bent condition. These muscles will adapt and overtime stay contracted and become very stiff. Initially hammertoes may have some flexibility but after time cannot be straightened.
