I have this dry, thick, and rough skin on the top of my foot. It's also a little darker than the rest of the skin. How can I get rid of it?
Try moisturizing it.: It is a little odd to complain of rough skin to the top of the foot as opposed to the bottom of the foot and hence, it may not just be "dry skin" you may have a dermatitis of some sort. Therefore, if moisturizer does not work visit a podiatrist or dermatologist to have it looked at. ...Read more

Callus: Calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin that develop when your skin tries to protect itself against friction and pressure. They most often develop on the feet and toes or hands and fingers. If you're healthy, you need treatment for calluses only if they cause discomfort.

Depends on...: ...The cause, as usual. If it's due to the material (or dye) in your shoes, you may need a cortisone cream (and new shoes). In all probability it is not athlete's foot, which occurs in between toes, not on top. If it's just dry skin, other areas of your body should be dry too - so if it's localized to your toe tops, i'd suggest you see a dermatologist and get a diagnosis. ...Read more

Hello. How can I prevent hard thick skin from growing back at the location where a corn was removed? Thanks
It could be fungus: Toenail fungal infections, onychomycosis, are characterized by thicking of the nail plate, discoloration (usually yellowish brown) lossening of the nail and accumulation of debris between the nail plate and nail bed. It is also possible that you are developing a corn on the end of your toe as a result of the toe being too long or becoming deformed. A quick exam can determine this. ...Read more
