Callosidades y callos

Las callosidades y los callos se forman en la piel debido a la presión o la fricción repetitiva. Una callosidad es una pequeña área sensible de piel engrosada que se presenta en la parte superior o lateral de un dedo del pie. Un callo es un área de piel áspera y gruesa que se presenta debido a una presión o irritación repetitiva en un área de la piel. Los callos regularmente se desarrollan en las palmas de las manos y en las plantas de los pies.
