Meaning of Callus
A callus (or callosity) is a toughened area of skin which has become relatively thick and hard in response to repeated friction, pressure, or other irritation. Rubbing that is too frequent or forceful will cause blisters rather than allow calluses to form. Since repeated contact is required, calluses are most often found on feet because of frequent walking. Calluses are generally not harmful, but may sometimes lead to other problems, such as skin ulceration or infection. - See link


Callus in Spanish is Callo
La hiperqueratosis, vulgarmente denominada como callo o "dureza", es una zona de la piel en la que se produce una acumulación de queratina correspondiente a la compactación de células muertas inertes de la epidermis en respuesta a un estímulo que puede ser, generalmente, el roce o la fricción excesiva. Las callosidades son más comunes en la zona del pie o de la mano dependiendo la actividad o factor en el cual haya surgido el callo. - See link
