What Causes Calluses?

Excessive pressure can lead to a callus which can form beneath weight-bearing and bony areas of the foot. This causes thick, hardened layers of skin to develop.


  • Pain or tenderness under the skin

  • Raised, hardened bump

  • Waxy, flaky or dry skin

  • Thick and rough area of skin

When to See a Doctor:

  • If the pain continues

  • Any sign of infection including redness, pain, and swelling.

  • Drainage of fluid from or around that callus 


Consult with your Valley Foot and Ankle Specialty Podiatrist for evaluation and discussion on the root cause of your pain. Depending on the root cause, surgical intervention may be the correct treatment.

Similar to Calluses but are smaller and usually appears on the toes rather than the sole of the foot. Corns are frequently round that are either hard or soft in the center. In most cases corns may be painful from skin inflammation.



Porokeratosis, also known as Intractable Plantar Keratosis is a deep callus directly under the ball of the foot.

The front office staff was very kind. Not a long wait but the waiting area was nicer than any place I've been before. Dr. Oji is friendly and willing to joke with you to put you at ease. We were laughing a lot as he worked on my toes.
