According to the Mayo Clinic, a callus will form on the skin as a result of constant pressure or friction. Calluses are commonly found on hands. You can recognize a callus because it appears as a raised bump that is hard and rough, and it will either be yellow or gray in color. Because calluses can be slightly painful and uncomfortable, take measures to get rid of them.
Fill a large bowl with half a gallon of warm water and 1 tsp. of a mild hand soap.
Place your hand in the bowl so that the callus is completely submerged. Wait 10 to 15 minutes before removing your hand.
Dry your hand off with a towel, and rub a pumice stone back and forth over the callus to remove some of its hard, dead skin.
Rub a moisturizer over your hands, being sure to completely coat the callus.
Repeat each day until the callus is completely gone.
