Many things can cause or look like a callus. Warts may look like a callus. Some reasons that one may develop a callus include: 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. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment

Lump on the palm of my hand Out of the blue, I noticed a hard lump in the palm of my hand. It doesn't hurt and it appears to be on/avobe the tendon of one of my fingers. It's definitely not a callous but I'm wondering if I should get it checked out. I

More information is needed for a proper recommendation. Different diagnosis could have the same presentation, causing bumps to show, like Dupuytren's, ganglions or even abscesses. Is it superficial or deep, painful or not? Go see your PCP for a proper evaluation.

Can laser photocoagulation be used to treat macular degeneration? I'm 65 and was recently diagnosed with macular degeneration. I want to do whatever I can to prevent myself from going blind. Is laser photocoagulation a safe treatment to cure my condition?

Not really

Macular_degeneration
Modern treatment of macular degeneration involves the use of laser photocoagulation less and less. Most people have dry macular degeneration which does not require surgical intervention. For those with the wet form, drugs are used much more than lasers today. Regardless of the treatment, we cannot cure macular degeneration currently. We can only manage it.

Is there any homeopathic medicine to cure foot corn I am having a foot corn under my foot thumb, I am applying corn/callous removers from last 1 month but its not helping , now from last one week I realized that some more small corns are coming up near

Lotion or surgery.

Open-uri20130328-30800-1oqyov5
Corns and calluses occur because of pressure points. Surgery can fix this, but if you're not ready for that, trimming them down and regular use of lotion may soften them to the point they don't bother you. You can also try larger shoes that don't rub against the painful areas! Offloading orthotics can also help: see your podiatrist for casting.

How to get rid of fungal nail infection? Is there any good treatment for this infection? I took antibiotic Lamisil for several months and use creams and lacquers. Nothing help. I have it on toe nails and on my finger nails appear dark thin marks. It does

Be sure it's fungus

Extremity-lower-foot-toes
You should have your nails cultured by a podiatrist to confirm it is actually fungus. Other conditions can cause darkening and thickening of nails and some, like melanoma, are very serious. Also, how long was Lamisil treatment? For toenails, you need to take it daily for 3 months and then wait an additional 6+ months for clear nail to replace the infected nail.

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!

Open-uri20130213-30460-zb6hg1
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.
