Pressure : Callouses develop when there is too much pressure and friction in the area of the foot. First par it down with a file. Then use spray deodorant (the armpit kind) to decrease sweat, this decreases friction. If that doesn't help, try otc inserts from a drug store to help off-load callus area.

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. ...Read more
I have calluses on the bottom of both of my big toes, no matter what shoes i run in(even with out any) i still get them, now one of them is getting pa?
See a podiatrist...: These calluses may be related to a biomechanical condition called hallux limitus.

There MAY also be a small "extra" bone (a sesamoid bone) at the bottom of the joint. An x-ray will tell. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have calluses on both of my outer big toes and i would like them to be removed for good. How can I do this? I have had them for years.

Depending on the deformity you can have a complex bunion resection or a simple cheilectomy "bumpectomy". I would have a orthopaedist or foot specialist evaluate you to go through your options with you. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I got a callous between my baby toe and the next toe , i've tried to scale it down but can't get all the way to it ..It there anything I can do ?
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. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
