Shoes Too BigSo you have something on your skin that hurts.  You may feel it as your walking around your Utah neighborhood or visiting local grocery stores in American Fork.  This could be a serious problem, but commonly is a less serious condition called a corn or callus.  These thickenings of your skin are caused by abnormal pressure or stress to the area.  They are common in dancers and other athletes, because of repetitive stress from their athletic activities.  They are also common in individuals with foot deformities or anyone that wears a poor fitting shoe (too big or too small).  This may be what you are finding on your own feet.

Although corns and calluses are often not a major problem, they can be very painful and may even limit regular activities.  It is therefore imporant that you understand what these growths are on your skin and also find treatment options.
