CALLUS

Is thick hard skin, which usually occurs as your skin's protective response to
pressure or friction. It often builds up on feet from rubbing on shoes. It is
also very common in open shoes, as your feet slide around in them, and the
friction causes the callus. Because callus isn't as stretchy as your normal
skin, it is more prone to cracks. Therefore it is important to manage your
skin to prevent callus and cracks. Podiatrists can remove your calluses, and
teach you how to prevent them. Cracks in your skin require expert attention
by a podiatrist.
