Callus (Hyperkeratosis)

Calluses are thickening of the skin on the feet and can cause discomfort. They are caused by excessive pressure or friction (rubbing) on the soles and heel of the feet and usually develops on the top of a toe, soles of your feet. Especially under the heels or balls of the foot (large patch of rough skin). This hardened skin is the body’s way of protecting itself from diffuse pressure or friction and responds by building up a hard-thickened layer of skin. This can cause pain and a burning sensation. Poorly fitted or worn footwear is a common cause. Some people with dry skin and sweaty feet condition are predisposed to developing callus.
