"Corns are thick-calloused lesions that usually form under a bony pressure point,” explains Jacqueline Sutera, DPM, a New York City-based podiatrist.

Psoriasis is the result of a sped-up skin production process. Typically, skin cells grow deep in the skin and slowly rise to the surface. Eventually, they fall off.

This rapid overproduction leads to the buildup of skin cells.
