My husband is in real pain. The cushions with holes are suitable for only small calluses. Now it is become huge and is creeping towards falling. But meanwhile he has become immobile. Is there anything I can make to relieve the pain. It has to be something that cushions, so the calluses don’t touch any surface. I wa s planning to cut out fro gel pads and wrap it on his foot. But am looking for better ideas.

1st off is he diabetic have Heart disease Any Peripheral Artery or Vascular Disease Diagnosis? or does any of that RUN in his family ? IF so Then ITS deeper then Just a dr scholls Soles kind of thing... ALso if the answers yes, Has he been to a Physician within the last year ? if he has did he have blood work? hows his cholesterol His Blood pressure general health? is he a smoker? was he a smoker but quit x number of months or years ago ? Just seeing a foot doctor without know anything will NOT serve any Good purpose... whatever the foot doctor does will become a monthly necessity... Yes start him soaking the feet in warm water and epsom salts every day or two 20 minutes to 40 minutes when he comes out there are a NUMBER of Tools available to work on these skin compressions from Things that look like cheese graters to Course Sanding blocks to those white Boney things that YOU give an Parrot to keep his claws and beak sharp to the little battery operated sandpaper device available at Walmart .. There are also various types of lotions That are made for DIABETIC PEOPLE to help soften the similarly rough skin issues You will find all of there items at the pharmacy or Walmart Target etc in the pharmacy section (FOOT isle) Ask the pharmacist if they carry "MOLESKIN" which is a large Peel and stick item similar to the small pads your speaking of for Bunions BUT without the holes IF his heel is anything LIKE MINE plastering it with moleskin patches May begin to help ALso What kind of shoes does he wear ? Flat soles like sneakers and Boat shoes Moccasins are terrible he needs a quality Heeled shoe and should change they day to day so one shoe can dry out and breath work Boots same thing Having two pair to swap back and forth is needed for foot health

See a podiatrist. We are the foot experts.

Audrey is correct. He needs to see a podiatrist. I don't know where you are, but Medicare pays for visits every 3 months in the U.S.
A podiatrist will exfoliate and safely grind down the thickened areas. Make an appointment! Good luck

He needs to see a podiatrist. If you have insurance it will usually pay for at least one visit.

It’s under his foot. Initially the callus pad cushions were working. Now with applications of medicines it’s peeling off and getting bigger.

Not much sense here. The calluses are where?

You should get some pain medicines. There is a pretty strong medicine called Tylenol.
Update: I think you should take him to a doctor or the hospital.
