Home remedies for calluses

Home remedies for calluses
Loading...
Calluses are hard, thick areas of skin that are often uncomfortable. They are rarely serious, and a number of simple home remedies can help reduce their appearance.

Excessive pressure or rubbing can cause calluses to develop on almost any area of skin. Common locations for calluses include the feet, the fingertips, and the palms of the hands.

A person can usually get rid of unwanted calluses at home. While it may take time and patience, regular exfoliation and moisturizing can help.

Refrain from using sharp objects to remove or reduce a callus. Doing this can injure the skin and lead to bleeding and even infection.

In this article, we discuss seven home remedies for calluses. We also offer some tips for prevention and describe when to see a doctor.

Epsom salts can help soften calluses in preparation for other treatments, such as manual exfoliation with a pumice stone or foot file.

Try adding a handful of Epsom salts to a bath or basin of warm water, then soaking the affected skin for 10 minutes.

A person can buy Epsom salts from most pharmacies. They are also available to purchase online.

2. Pumice stones

Pumice stones are light, porous stones that many people use to exfoliate dead skin and calluses.

These stones work best after a person has softened the skin. An easy way to do this is to soak the callused area in warm water for 5–10 minutes before using the stone. Adding Epsom salts to the water may improve results.
