Hello Sir,
A callus or hyperkeratosis is an abnormal thickening of skin. They say it is because of the excessive pressure applied on a particular area; however it may not be the reason in all the cases.
Excision or surgical removal is one of the methods to eliminate the callus. However, in some cases they may reoccur.
You may also try using corn caps and application of salicylic acid on the affected area.
Another method is to dip your leg in warm water for 15-20 minutes and peel off the callus using a pumice stone.
In Ayurveda, there is a procedure called "Agni-Karma" where the corn/callus is removed. You may have to consult a specialist for it.
Please start wearing MCR footwear.

I have bad foot pain, with multiple corns, calluses, hammer toes. I have tried OTC orthotics inside my shoes and they don t help and have to wear only soft shoes such as tennis shoes with mesh to lessen pressure on tender spots of feet. I have a job that requires a lot of walking, but would like to find relief for my feet. What do you recommend?

Hi Dr. Samuel, I have a corn on my toe for 3 weeks and it was painful at one point! The pinky toe by the way, I have been soaking my feet in a foot bath for a week in epsom salt out of those three weeks. I also brought liquid corn and callus remover since using that my toe looks discolored and gray but less pain and the skin is peeling away.. Is the discoloring normal and does that mean the corn is going away. I can see the corn since the skin has peeled away. I do have an appointment with a podiatrist next month.

I have a spot on the inside of my ring finger between the middle and ring finger where the skin has grown tough like a callus but it never goes away and I do not do anything physically to obtain the callus. The same thing is on the inside lower digit of my thumb on the same hand. On the thumb however there has been a soreness and I have to put vaseline or triple antibiotic cream and a bandaid each to keep the lubrication on that area or the thumb has cracked and then it really hurts. Again I do not use that part of my thumb on a regular basis. Do you have any clues as to what it is and should I be worried enough to go to a dermatologist? It has lasted for a few months.
