hi der usually corns are recurrent in nature.....corns are areas of thick skin caused by pressure or friction. They may cause pain when you walk or wear shoes.

Calluses usually form on your hands or feet. They usually don't need treatment.

Corns have an inner core that can be soft or hard. Soft corns are found between your toes. Hard corns may form on the tops of your toes. Corns caused by poorly fitting shoes will often go away with the right size shoe.

corns are caused by repeated pressure or friction on an area of skin. The pressure causes the skin to die and form a hard, protective surface. A soft corn is formed in the same way, except that when sweat is trapped where the corn develops, the hard core softens. This typically occurs between toes.corns are not caused by a virus and are not contagious.

Repeated handling of an object that puts pressure on the hand, such as tools (gardening hoe or hammer) or sports equipment (tennis racquet), typically causes corns on the hands.
corns often form on bunions, hammer, claw, or mallet toes, or on the bumps caused by rheumatoid arthritis. Calluses and corns on the feet may also be caused by repeated pressure due to sports (such as a callus on the bottom of a runner's foot), an odd way of walking (abnormal gait), or a bone structure, such as flat feet or bone spurs (small, bony growths that form along joints).

. A hard corn is also firm and thick. It may have a soft yellow ring with a gray center. A soft corn looks like an open sore.

corns often are not painful, but they can cause pain when you are walking or wearing shoes. And they may make it hard for your feet to fit in your shoes. Any type of pressure applied to the corn, such as squeezing it, can also cause pain.
corns do not need treatment unless they cause pain. If they do cause pain, you can ease the pain by:

Wearing shoes that fit well and are roomy, with wide and deep toe boxes (the area that surrounds the toes).
A wider toe box keeps the toes from pressing against each other, relieving pressure on soft corns.
A deeper toe box keeps the toes from pressing against the top of the shoe, relieving pressure on hard corns.
Using protective padding while your foot heals, such as:
Moleskin.
Toe separators camera
Toe crest pads camera
Toe caps and toe sleeves

Reducing the size of the callus or corn by soaking your callus or corn in warm water and then using a pumice stone to lightly wear away the dead skin. Never cut the corn or callus yourself, especially if you have diabetes or other conditions that cause circulatory problems or numbness.
Using salicylic acid to soften the  or corn. You can then rub the  or corn off with a pumice stone. Some doctors advise against using salicylic acid because it can damage surrounding skin. If you use salicylic acid, be sure to apply it only to the corn and not to the surrounding skin. And never use salicylic acid if you have diabetes or other conditions that cause circulatory problems or numbness.
Having your doctor pare (trim) the corn with a small knife.

other causes: diabetes, peripheral arterial disease, peripheral neuropathy, or other conditions that cause circulatory problems or numbness

corns can be prevented by reducing or eliminating pressure on the skin.
Calluses on your hands usually can be prevented by wearing gloves to protect your hands, such as when gardening or lifting weights. Calluses on your feet can usually be prevented by wearing shoes and socks that fit well.

Corns on your feet can usually be prevented by wear
kindly consult surgeon for further evaluation and treatment.
