What are Foot Calluses?
Foot Calluses are a thickening of the skin as a result of intermittent pressure and friction. It is the way that healthy skin protects itself from undue stress and therefore can occur in any part of the body such as a labourer's hands. In the feet the most common area for foot calluses to occur is at the ball of the foot and around the heel area which can cause heel pain. Occasionally, foot calluses may occur at the tip or on the top of toes as a result of ill fitting shoes.
