Dear patient,

Thanks for the query. You can also try to use some local keratolytic agents such as salicylic acid at 1% to help; it they are indeed callous lesions from friction, that would help as well. The concommitant use of a low dose steroid, such as hydrocortisone at 1% can help with inflammation.

Yours truly,
