Decision Time.: Skin thickening, as you describe, is caused by pressure. The toe skin is being trapped between the toe bone , on the inside, and either the shoe or other toes on the outside. As more and more pressure is applied, the skin defends itself by thickening and your corn is formed. To remedy the problem you must either remove the outside pressure (shoes) or remove the inside pressure (bone). I pick shoes
