Hello,

This can be callus or corn formation.

They are hard, thickened areas of skin that form as a consequence of rubbing, friction or pressure on the skin.

As you wear work boots so it can cause friction.

Most corns and calluses gradually disappear when the friction or pressure stops, if you have to wear your boots then custom-made padded shoe inserts (orthotics) inside your boots can be helpful.

Properly positioned moleskin pads can help relieve pressure on affected area.

You can try OTC a patch containing 40 percent salicylic acid (Callus Remover, Clear Away, others).

Avoid scratching it with clippers.

Walk barefoot whenever possible, especially at home.
Soaking feet in warm water and filing the callus down with a pumice stone gently to smooth thickened skin.

Apply moisturiser on affected area also.

And see a podiatrist if it recurs again.

Hope this helps.
Use reply to let me know if you have further queries.
Please to not forget a positive rating.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
