What are Calluses?

A callus is a thickened and hardened part of the skin or soft tissue, especially in an area that has been subjected to frequent friction or irritiation.


Calluses do not require treatment unless they become uncomfortable. Treatments include soaking and softening it followed by a pumice stone to buff away skin over the callus. Follow up with a moisturizing cream. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Calluses

A callus is a thickened area of skin that appears on areas of the body exposed to repeated friction or irritation. The classic examples are those people get on their feet when they wear a pair of shoes that don’t fit properly. These thickened areas feel rough and bumpy to the touch, but they usually aren’t painful unless they grow very large or rub against shoes that irritate them. They also form quite commonly on hands exposed to friction from using instruments or even writing with a pencil or pen for a long period of time.

What Causes Them?

Calluses are a reaction to repeated irritation and friction. In response to the constant irritation and rubbing, skin cells in the outermost layer of the skin build up to provide an additional layer of protection. They aren’t a health threat, but they can be unsightly to look at. Most people don’t want to put on a pair of sandals when they have calluses on their feet.
