How can i get rid of a callous on the bottom of my foot.?

Callus

Extremity-foot
A painful callus can arise over areas of increased friction or pressure. Try to offload the painful area with some type of over the counter padding. Also, topical therapies that contain urea or salycilic acid can be helpful to thin out the thickened callus.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

Blood blister

Skin
It could be a blood blister - these can take a few weeks to reabsorb. Other dark red skin lesions include hemangiomas, which are basically abnormal collections of blood vessels.

How do i treat corns/ callous under my feet?

Severall things

Extremity-joint-ankle
First get some very good shoes and ones the right size and with very good support. Next, treat the corn and calluses with softening agents and wear padding over the areas in question. Next use an apporpriate emory, rasp, drimmel, or other device to pare, currette or file down the hard lesions. You may need special orthotics and to see a foot/ankle orthopedist or podiatrist.
