Brief Answer:
Callus

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I have seen the image.

Its nothing but a regular uncomplicated frictional callus.

Applying salicylic acid ointments will soften and help in removing the same. You can also apply Corn Caps (by Medigrip). Once the lesion is softened, it can be excised in the ER.

Hope, I answered your query.

Wish you good health.
