A thick callus can increase pressure on the bottom of your foot, resulting in possible wounds or infections. If the callouses are reoccurring, there are both conservative and surgical treatments out there to help with your symptoms.
Calluses require a lot of maintenance you will need to shave them down regularly or use a glycolic acid foot cream. You can try to add metatarsal pads from amazon in your shoes to help
offload the toes and reduce the amount of callus formed.

Hyperkeratotic lesions, a.k.a. callouses, can be treated conservatively and surgically dependent on the musculoskeletal deformity present. I would recommend urea cream and a ped egg until you can see a professional.
Thank you for your question and God bless.
