Callus is the hardened and thickened part of the skin, with yellowish color, mostly in an area subjected to excessive force, pressure, or friction. If you don’t treat the callus on time, it can be very painful and moreover, it can cause serious skin infection.
Calluses often appear on the feet, because when we walk, the foot is the part which is mostly exposed to pressure.
Athletes, dancers, chefs, and musicians have higher risk of experiencing calluses due to their work demands.
However, there are other factors which can cause callus including uncomfortable shoes like tight fitting shoes or high heels.
