Health Tip: Treating Calluses at Home

(HealthDay News) -- Calluses are thick, hardened layers of skin. For healthy people, treatment is only necessary if a callus causes discomfort, says Mayo Clinic.

Mayo suggests how to treat calluses at home:

  • Use over-the-counter pads.

  • Soak the area in water.

  • Moisturize your skin.

  • Wear comfortable socks and shoes.

For most people, removing sources of friction causes calluses to shrink and ultimately disappear.
