Calluses & Corns: When pressure is constantly applied to parts of your hands and feet, the skin will thicken and a callus will develop. Wearing ill-fitting shoes can cause pressure on your toes, which develops into corns. These usually appear on the fourth or fifth toes, often also as a result of anatomical variations.  

  Warts: Caused by a virus and can appear anywhere on the body. If left untreated, warts become painful and spread further. You may find relief from effective over-the-counter wart treatments, so ask your pharmacist to recommend the best treatment for you.

Plantar Fasciitis: This painful foot condition may be linked to heel spurs. One method to try to relieve this pain is by stretching your calf muscles. Doing a simple calf muscle stretch four times a day may gradually ease your pain, and regular stretching can prevent the problem from returning. Pressure-relieving heel pads and anti-inflammatory creams may also assist.
