Callus are large dense, hardened patches of skin that have formed due to constant strain, pressure, irritation, or agitation.
Callus typically form on the sides and soles of the feet, can cause a tremendous amount of foot pain & discomfort, and they’re not often serious.
However if left untreated, they can result in serious problems such as breakdown of the skin and ulcers.
If you have diabetes, heart disease, a reduced immune system or problems with your circulation, do not try to treat corns or callus yourself.
These conditions can make foot problems more serious and you should always seek help from your foot specialist to treat any foot related problems.
