A callus is a section of skin that has thickened over time due to constant friction, pressure, or irritation. Most commonly found on the heel, bottom, or on the bony joint of the foot, they can occur on other parts of the feet and body, that experience regular friction. Like corns – having bunions, hammertoes, and other foot problems can increase the risk of getting a callus. Dry skin is another common cause.
Pale yellow in color, calluses can feel thick, flaky, dry, or waxy to the touch and less sensitive than other skin on the foot. They are the body’s natural barrier to friction but can become stiff and uncomfortable, sometimes causing pain to the touch, especially when cracking or splitting occurs.

Be sure to wash and moisturize your feet regularly and wear well-fitted footwear to minimize the chances of forming or thickening of a callus.
