Porokeratosis foot is very painful especially when pressure is exerted on the foot when one is walking. The pain is felt within the lesion and this is why the treatment is difficult. Hyperkeratosis indicates increased keratinocyte activity. This results from the increased pressure. Walking while bear footed can lead to one having the feet developing keratotic tissues on the foot. Corns and the callules are the abnormal keratinisation which can characterised as porokeratosis foot. Callules are often found in people’s feet especially on the weight bearing surface. This is common to the individuals with the tendencies of walking barefooted.

Corns are especially found on the toes. They are painful and do produce some sweat-like substance. This is accompanied by continuous paining and the toes swells up. The corns develop some thorn-like structures which are tightly fixed in the epidermal part of the toes. Other lesions of the porokeratosis foot may be similar to corns and callules. There are some ways which people do differentiate between the corns and the callules. This is done by obtaining the best treatment results for your patients.
