9+ top rated products that can help treat calluses

Calluses are not a serious health condition, but they can sometimes cause pain and discomfort. They form as a protective response when the skin is subjected to frequent friction or pressure. When the constant friction is stopped, calluses can usually go away on their own. But if, for example, you must wear uncomfortable shoes to work every day, the callus can become thicker and more unsightly.
Only the most severe cases require surgery to remove a callus. Other cases can be treated at home with products purchased over the counter. If you are ready to treat calluses at home, here are some of the top products to try.
1. Pumice stone
If you have calluses, you should have a pumice stone such as the Natural Earth Lava Pumice Stone for Foot Calluses by Zenda Naturals. After you shower or after soaking your feet for about 10 minutes in a foot bath, wet the pumice stone and use it to slough away layers of dry, callused skin.
