Pressure : Callouses develop when there is too much pressure and friction in the area of the foot. First par it down with a file.

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.

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. If the big toe can't bend "up" during activities as much as it should, more pressure will be placed at the bottom of the big toe causing calluses. There MAY also be a small "extra" bone (a sesamoid bone) at the bottom of the joint. An x-ray will tell. ...Read more

You probably have a : Prominent MTP joint on the inside of your big toe or possibly an early bunion. 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 more

How can you get rid of a callous on your toe?

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 more
