In brief: Hard work
Callus is a toughened area of skin which has become relatively thick and hard in response to repeated friction, pressure, or other irritation.
Rubbing that is too frequent or forceful will cause blisters rather than allow calluses to form., calluses are most often found on feet because of frequent walking. Calluses are generally not harmful cause complicated by ulcer or infection.

In brief: Depends on the cause
Many things can cause calluses.
Some reasons that one may develop a callus include: viral infections (warts), friction, pressure, repedetive trauma, and a limitation of joint motion. Some genetic conditions may also cause people to develop calluses on the hands and the feet. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.
