It is important to have your feet checked by a HcPC Chiropodist or Podiatrist. There are other forms of painful hard skin lumps such as Verrucae, Corns, Fungal infections or Bacterial infections. . You may want to try to file and cream the area using an emollient. How can a Chiropodist or Podiatrist help?
