A callus is an area of thick, hardened skin. Calluses are formed at points where there is a repeated or prolonged friction, for example, if you spend hours sweeping the garden.
The skin hardens from the pressure over time and eventually thickens, forming a surface layer to the hard, rough, yellow or gray tending to may feel bumpy.
Home Remedies to Remove Calluses
