You need to make: Sure it is a callous and not something else. If its a callous and you are not diabetic you can attempt to remove it yourself or file it. A podiatrist would be able to do that painlessly for you though.... Read more

Hard toe lumps: These limps can be warts; sometimes they look yellowish and other times they look like they have small dots in it. If you pinch it, does it hurt/ Warts usually hurt with the pinch test. Calluses do not. See a Podiatrist and have them checked out. Read more
Callus: Usually calluses are formed due to increased pressure. To get rid of them may involve orthotics, change in shoegear, or even potentially surgery. You can make them less painful with the use of moisturizers after getting your feet wet to the dry/callused areas. Or use of a pumice stone daily after getting your feet wet as well. I would not advise you take a razor to your feet! Read more
Calluses: Are the gradual thickening of the skin due to repeated pressure. It's a protective thing and not anything you can rush. If you try to rush it, you'll blister instead.

Solution to callus:
Hello and thank you for your question,
Callus formation is commonly due to ill-fitting shoes that may cause a patient to walk in a manner that creates the callus. My first suggestion would be to identify that shoe that you may feel is causing the problem and purchase sole pads to insert in them. If it is an isolated callus, a callus cushion may be beneficial. Good luck. Dr. Kosari Read more
