Calluses

Calluses

If skin is constantly rubbed or excessive pressure is applied over it then it can become thick and hard. This is a natural way in which the skin protects itself. The sole of the foot and elbow are commonly affected. It occurs especially when the shoes worn are either small or not soft enough. The callus can tear, causing damage to the skin in the form of a ragged hole known as an ulcer. This can get infected. Diabetics are more prone to develop calluses.
