Corns and calluse

I have been facing an issue of a caluse in the left toe. I have carried out the procedure of softening it by soaking the feet in warm water and then rubbing a pumice stone. However, the call use doesn't seem to have gone. It is painful and when the skin is pulled out, it bleeds. Can you please tell me the exact doctor I can go to and get the call use surgically removed or through any application of ointment or something.

Hello Dear, Unless the callosity is very severe,it us not necessary to remove it surgically. Good ointments and creams are available which can reduce the thickness. If you can send a picture of the skin, I will be able to suggest you a good cream which will reduce the thickening of the skin and you will feel better
