- Calluses – People suffering from calluses are more likely to develop calluses. High pressure points underneath the feet lead to the formation of calluses. Therapeutic shoes and inserts work to cure calluses. Calluses should always be trimmed otherwise it becomes thick and form into ulcers. Never use harsh chemical agents to remove calluses because it can burn your skin. The best way to remove calluses is by using a pumice stone in the shower.
