Avoid Tight shoes: Calluses and corns are areas of thick, hardened, dead skin. They form to protect the skin and structures under the skin from pressure, friction, and injury. They may appear grayish or yellowish, be less sensitive to the touch than surrounding skin, and feel bumpy. Calluses on the hands and feet of an active person are normal. Calluses and corns become a problem when they grow large enough to cause.

Debriedment : See podiatrist for debriedment which is shaving it. May be caused by bone spur. Podiatrist can diagnose and treat the problem. Do not shave it off yourself !

You can file them: With an emory board. You can get a pedicure or see a podiatrist who will explain why you are getting it and offer possible solutions so they don't come back.
