Calluses develop by accumulation of dead cells when there is pressure or friction against the adjacent shoe or bone.

A horn is nothing but a callus with a hard center. Core filled with serum, the heart of the callus generates an often unbearable pain.

Emergency gestures

Emergency descent of the horn to relieve suffering is the first mission of pedicure and coricides purchased in pharmacies.

You can also bathe the cor, in a solution of sea salt or crystals of soda for 15 minutes. On contact with salt water, the horn deflates and softens and its surface part is easily detached. Apply a moisturizing cream to soften the skin.
