Callus

A callus is a thickened area of skin on the foot caused by pressure and repeated rubbing, such as from a shoe or sock. The rubbing causes the skin to produce a layer of protective skin (a callus).
Calluses vary in size, and can become painful. There are a number of treatments for painful calluses. People who have calluses are cautioned against performing “bathroom surgery,” as this can lead to cuts and infection.
A foot and ankle surgeon can evaluate the cause of the calluses and recommend the treatment most appropriate for your condition. However, if the underlying cause of the callus is not treated or removed, the callus may return.

    I am trying to find a shoe liner that will be able to have a shoulder on it were my middle toe was partially amputated due to infection.The purpose is to prevent a Callus that turns into a Ulcer due to the fact that the toe is missing to support the pressure at the callus area. Any help will be Appreciated. Thank You & GOD Bless (t)
