Cracked heels, calluses and corns are all common foot complaints and can be both unsightly and uncomfortable. As we get older, our skin becomes drier making us more prone to foot complaints. Toe deformities such as bunions and hammer toes also alter the shape of our feet, increasing the chances of friction and, thereby, corns and callouses.
