Any permanent way to get rid of a callous at the base of the big toe. Really painful and keeps coming back after being scraped.
Not permanent, but..: Callosity is simply the body's way of protecting itself from continuing trauma by building up excess tissue at the area of trauma. Scraping can certainly reduce this build up, but it is a dynamic process and will return over time. Consider adding ammonium lactate lotion to slow the growth. It works by increasing the amount of moisture in the skin and dissolving aggregated skin cells.
Callus: I would see a podiatrist they can trim the calluse and have other treatment options to eliminate or reduce the calluse. I would also get an orthotic made to off load pressure. Make sure your wearing the proper size shoes. Sometimes a calluse is a wart (viral infection).

How do I get rid of this? On sole of the foot a raised or flat lesion with a hole in the center can be an inverted keratosis which is callus
Could be anything.: It could be just about anything. The critical question to be asked is whether or not the lesion is located directly over a weight bearing bony area, as opposed in an area that bears no direct weight. Determining the difference between a callus, wart and foreign body can stump even the most experienced observer. To remove all doubt, have your foot examined by a podiatrist or dermatologist.
Callus under palm of foot I've gotten pedicures, and I continue to trim down the callus and it continues to bring pain in my foot about 2 weeks after the treatment. Is there anything I can do to get rid of it, or what am I doing wrong?
NEED FOR CUSHION!: Most shoes aren't always what is bad, usually it's the crummy insoles they come with! There are many possibe reasons that you may have pain in the foot, but try cushioning arch supports like spenco polysorb cross-trainers (http://www. Spenco. Com/products/footcare/poly-sorb). If these don't help, see a podiatrist.... Surgery may help too, depending on a accurate diagnosis.See 2 more doctor answers
There's a blister on my foot that feels like a callous. There is dark red under the skin. I've had it a while. Is it a blood blister? How do I get rid
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.
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.
Reduce pressure: 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.See 2 more doctor answers
Ensure foot health: Before performing any treatments on your feet you will want to make sure that the neurovascular status is intact. This can be a concern particularly in diabetic patients. In this case, foot care may best be administered by a podiatrist. If you are otherwise in excellent health appropriate exfoliative treatments (mechanical, etc) may be used with attention to not damage the deeper layers of the ski.See 1 more doctor answer
I have severe calluses on the top my toes and was wondering how to get rid of them? I cut off the dead skin every so often but it always comes back
Toe callus: Most of the time, calluses are due to friction and pressure from the toes against your shoes. You can keep trimming off the callus skin but on until the pressure is removed, it will keep growing back. He may want to try something to relieve the pressure or consider possible surgery to fix any deformity within the toe itself.See 2 more doctor answers
Conservative: Treatment rendered by a podiatrist would consist of trimming the corn/callous away. Smart shoe selection and possibly paddings to protect the tow would help prevent reformation. Finally, surgery if possible is very practical for this condition as it will fix the problem permenately, and allow you to wear most shoes without a problem.See 2 more doctor answers
I have a callous on the inside of my baby toes. It hurts really bad. How did I get it? How do I get rid of it?
Remove the pressure.: The first issue is to make sure the callous is not, in fact, a wart. Callous can form, especially on the second toe, when the toe is longer than it's neighboring toes. The added length enables more pressure to be directed to the toe and form a callous. Secondary problems could hammer or mallet toe development. Warts are caused by a virus and the treatment varies depending on location and severity.See 1 more doctor answer
