Calluses develop in response to excessive friction or pressure on the skin. In the toes and feet we find this to be due to deformities in the feet and muscular imbalances that lead to overuse. The calluses can be 'cured' if the toe position is corrected surgically. However, not all cases require surgery. The conservative treatments for these calluses include a skin softening cream, use of pumi stone and also the use of silicone to padding and silicone tape. These treatments offer relief from excessive skin buildup and reduce friction that the skin experiences.
