A corn is the result of localized thickening of the skin due to pressure, often forms in the shape of a cone, and can cause pain. In a situation of continuous pressure (walking, sports, standing ...), the corn initially serves to protect your foot from external attacks. Corns can be found on the joints of hammer toes (hard), between the toes (soft) or on the sole of the foot. If not treated, the corn keeps coming back because the skin is already affected.
A toenail infected with a fungal infection is yellowish, thick, dystrophic and crumbly. This is a slow infection that gradually damages the nail.
If your nail seems to push outwards, so that it grows under your skin and becomes painful, you are probably suffering from an ingrown toenail. They can be generated by trauma, shoes that are too small, nails cut too short, etc. As ingrown toenails are conducive to infection, it is better to treat it quickly.
A plantar wart is caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV) that affects the outer layers of the skin and creates a benign but painful lesion.
