Depends on the cause: Many things can cause a thickening of the skin. Causes may include: viral infections (warts), friction, pressure, repetitive trauma, and a limitation of joint motion. Some genetic conditions may also cause people to develop calluses on the hands and the feet. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
