2. Signs and Symptoms

Corns often begin as small bumps that rise from the skin and are hard to the touch. Some corns are flaky and dry while others cause the skin to feel waxy. The main symptoms of corns are pain and tenderness in areas under the skin. Over time, they can swell and become red, particularly after the person wears tight-fitting shoes.
