Corn is actually a bulging hard skin that appears on your feet. It usually feels like a thick raised hard skin, decolorised to a more yellowish patch of skin and is usually causes discomfort and pain when you walk in your shoes.

When you develop corn, the center of the corn is where the core is. It is where the greatest friction or pressure is stressed on. There are hard corns and soft corns, the hard corns are on the upper surfaces of the toes while the soft corns are in between the toes. Such corns started to develop to protect your skin from those prolonged damages.
