7 Things That Can Provoke Corns and Dry Feet Skin

The beauty and health of the feet is as important as well-groomed hands. The most common problem, for women and men, is dry, scaly skin on their feet. This state is also called corns.




The causes of corn skin on the feet varies. This can be as a consequence of external factors (poor hygiene, lack of care, excessive weight, etc.), and the result of internal pathologies. Most often, fungal diseases and contact allergic dermatitis are diagnosed. All possible causes of dry dermis on the feet are named below.



Constantly wearing uncomfortable shoes (high-heeled, cramped, made from non-natural materials) is one of the most common reasons for the appearance of coarse skin on soles of the feet. Violated metabolic processes in tissues, the cells no longer receive nutrients in the right amount, the dermis dries up and coarsens.


Lack of Care

The skin of the feet, like any other part of the body, need daily care, which includes not only hygiene but also cleansing with scrubs and nourishing creams. In the absence of care, rough skin appears on the soles of the feet, cracks, and piles, which means that there is a risk of contracting fungus and other infectious diseases.


Dryness of the Skin

This condition of the dermis is inherited. With proper care, coarse skin can be avoided. But, in the absence of nourishment, the skin begins to dry up. It aggravates the process and wearing of inappropriate footwear.



Mycosis of the foot is one of the most common skin diseases. The causes of the ailment are:

  • Poor hygiene;
  • Long exposure to water;
  • Constant wearing of closed shoes.


The atopic reaction at the feet resembles a fungus, but, in addition to dry skin with bubble formations, there may be:

  • Itching;
  • Swelling;
  • Dry skin;
  • Burning;
  • Redness;
  • Stool disorder;
  • Rash on the palms;
  • Temperature, etc.


With a disturbed metabolism, the skin on the soles of the feet becomes rough - a common phenomenon.


Deficiency of Vitamins and Minerals (starvation or diets)

Skin cells don’t get a sufficient supply of nutrients, so they become dry, causing cracks to appear. If there is no additional care (or, conversely, traumatic exfoliation of the cornified dermis), then the area of the coarsened dermis thickens even more.
