foot sander. This device removes the thick and dry skin around
the callous by gently sanding it away.
You can also use a large pored
mineral sponge for the foot
callous removal. The mineral substances in the sponge slowly
degrade the hard skin around the callous until the callous is
Another type of item that is
used for foot callous removal is
that of a corn and callous plane or a knife. This item should
used with care as you can hurt yourself while you are removing
the callous. You use the callous plane to gently cut off the
dead, thick skin on the callous so that it can be rubbed with
moisturizer to prevent the hard regrowth of the callous.
After trying all of these treatments
if your callouses are
still there and causing you some pain then you should visit a
podiatrists to see if there is any way that your foot callous
can be removed and the previously affected area treated. Usually
podiatrists will prescribe topical medications for you to apply.
