Using callous shaver w/razor blade, I accidentally cut a bean-sized chunk out of my heel. What are best steps to treat it at home? Bleeding stopped.

Topical antibiotic

Incision
after cleaning with saline. Apply protective bangade and avoid pressure on area. Just to be safe, have it looked at by Physician to make sure no infection or other issues affect this. By the way. Do not use the shaver again as it obviously is putting you at risk for injury. See a Podiatrist.

What does a callous feel like?

Many patients

Pain
Describe it as a bump. It is simply dead skin that has formed. Sometimes it could hurt but not always.

How to remove callous from the bottom of my feet ?

Scrape or sand.

Extremity-lower-foot
If very thick you can use a sharp blade to shave this down to pain. if relatively thin there are a number of devices one can purchase at the beauty supply store. Some look like microplane cheese graters and others like coarse blocks of sandpaper.

It can

Numbness

How can you get rid of a callous on your toe?

Reduce pressure

Callus
A callus is because the skin is being rubbed between a hard surface on the outside(like your shoe) and the bone on the inside. If you reduce this friction the callus will slowly disappear. Sometimes this is very difficult to do depending on where the callus is located. If there is a bone spur(bump of bone) under the callus it can sometimes be reduced by surgery.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

my husband has developed knots on the soles of his feet, and several hard white callous like growths on his palms. what could be going on?

May be corns, warts

Open-uri20120427-27865-opvu5f
A person with firm bumps on the soles most commonly has corns or warts. Corns are thickened skin areas, but warts are thickened areas with distorted "fingerprint" lines due to virus infection of the skin cells. A dermatologist or primary doctor should evaluate. On the palms, calluses (which are similar to corns) form if a person is getting pressure or friction repeatedly on certain palmar areas.
