Heloma, is the hardened layer of thick skin that develops when a body part tries to protect itself against constant friction or pressure. They often form under the feet, on toes, inside the palms and on fingers. They are mostly found in athletes, people engaged in physical labour, and it is also common in middle-aged Indian women who work for long hours every day.
Heloma is widely known as corn, commonly known as corn is similar to calluses, but they are deeper inside the skin and have a hard centre, at times are painful. And this centre is often surrounded by swollen skin. They can be painful as well.
There are two types of corns, soft and hard. Soft corns form between toes and harder corns form on top of toes, the edge of the toes or the underside of the feet.
Corns form because of friction and pressure from repeated actions between skin and the surrounding surface. They are also found in people who have diabetes and issues with blood circulation
When you feel the corn is growing in your feet, soak your feet in warm water until the skin is soft and supple. Use a pumice stone or thick nail fail [emery board], wet it and rub the sine or the file gently on the corned area and remove the dead skin.
Maintain the motion and file it down. Don’t overdo the dead skin removal, as it can lead to infection and bleeding.
Apply a moisturizing cream or lotion with urea, salicylic acid or ammonium lactate in it — to the affected area, every day, as this will help in softening the skin.
In Indian drug stores, donut-style adhesive pads, shaped like bandages with circular padding, are easily available. They go by various names like corn caps, decorns, corn bandages etc.
A person suffering from corns doesn’t need a prescription to buy them. But these pads are not a long term cure, they are a temporary solution. They curb the immediate growth of the inward skin and remove the corn after a week or so.
But if our habits and practices don’t change, the corns are bound to come back in a few months.
If you or anyone you know is suffering from painful corn and calluses, it might be an issue with genes or bone deformities developed over the years.
Indian middle-age women are much more prone to developing corns and calluses because of hours they spend working on their feet. Hence, make sure, that they are well rested and are wearing proper shoes or gloves when they are working. The best way to cure corn and calluses is by taking precautions.

Half a decade ago marriage was a bargain between two famlies. Most of the women were married off to a man who was either well off or who could fend for his wife and family. Today the parameters of marriage have changed. Women no longer marry for the sake of economic security. Their expectations from marriage have changed in the course of years because of their changed status.
As women grew independent, their patterns of choosing partners have changed dramatically. Now women choose men who they feel can satiate their emotional as well as physical needs. Intimacy is no longer the physicality that happened between two people under the supervision of elders of the family for the sole purpose of procreation. Intimacy in today’s marriages involve understanding and fulfilling each other’s emotional as well as sexual needs.
So before you decide to hook up see if you know these five things about intimacy.
The recent Bold Care ad breaks some long standing taboos in Indian society about women's sexual pleasure and erectile dysfunction in men.
The co-owner of the new sexual health brand – Bold Care, Ranveer Singh, recently shared that he wants to focus at creating awareness amongst people about men’s sexual health and aims to provide a tangible solution to millions of people across the country. The new Bold Care ad which was dropped last week has taken the internet by storm. Netizens are ogling at the ad and cannot stop talking about it and how?
The Bold Care ad has created a buzz for multiple reasons. One, because of the unexpected collaboration between the A-list Bollywood actor and co-owner of the brand – Ranveer Singh and (wait for it… drumrolls please) the adult film star Johnny Sins.
People were not ready to see Johnny Sins in an Indian commercial ad and had their jaws dropped to the floor when they saw him dressed in a blue kurta and a golden coat and tie acting in a saas-bahu rip off. The internauts have claimed this unusual duo as the biggest crossover ever – bigger than Deadpool and Wolverine coming together! Second, the ad aims to normalise the stigma related to men’s sexual wellbeing and the ease with which it can be addressed.
