In brief: Wearing high heels

If wearing shoes, especially womens dress heels barefooted, you can create a lot of friction from motion of feet in shoes.
If you wear hosiery it will likely help. Also, daily footcare using exfoliating creams/soaps/lotions and/or pumice stonehi can help remove surface layers of builtup callus and keep skin soft and more elastic.

In brief: Have it evaluated

Some causes of corns or calluses include: friction, pressure, repetitive trauma, and a limitation of joint motion.
Some may develop bleeding under the callus resulting in a darkened discoloration of the underlying skin. You may benefit with the use of a special topical moisturize and the use of a pumice stone or an emory board. Consult with your podiatrist and determine the best approach for you.
