A callus is an area of hard, thickened skin that can occur across the ball of the foot, on the heel, or on the outer side of the big toe. While many consider them a skin problem, they actually are systemic of a problem with the bone. Calluses have painful nerves and bursal sacs fluid-filled balloons that act as shock absorbers beneath them, causing symptoms ranging from sharp, shooting pain to dull, aching soreness. Calluses form from repeated friction and pressure as the shoe or ground rubs against a bony prominence bone spur on the toe or foot.
