Have you found a growth on the bottom of your foot that’s hard and flat, perhaps with tiny black pin points in the center?
A corn, to put it simply, it is a patch of rough skin that generally forms on the tops and sides of the feet, and between the toes.
Athlete’s foot is a fungal skin infection that is contagious. Public facilities or gym locker rooms are common areas where this infection is picked up because most people walk around barefoot.
Corns start out as thin layers of dead skin on the feet and can become hard or soft. They can form between toes or on the top of them. They can become painful from infections or from the pressure they create on the skin.
