Hello Fadly Jamal,

Thickening of the skin in the legs can be distinguished from being callus (calluses) and clavus (fish eyes). This thickening of the skin occurs because of friction or pressure in that section repeatedly. Callus is usually formed in the sole of the foot, usually in the back near the heel or near the bottom of the thumb (the more prominent part). Callus usually does not give pain complaints. Clavus usually forms on the side of the finger such as the thumb or pinkie, it can also be on the palm. The difference, clavus gives pain, thickening is generally in the middle with slightly reddish skin around it.

The causes of the formation of callus and clavus include because they do not use footwear, do many activities using feet such as walking long distances, playing ball, etc., using shoes that are too narrow, not wearing socks. In some people with deformed leg bones also have a higher risk for callus and clavus. The diagnosis of callus and clavus is done by the doctor through history taking (asking for a history of complaints) and physical examination. Sometimes X-ray examination is needed to see the underlying leg bone abnormality. Handling of callus and clavus can be by administering drops containing salicylic acid, trimming (scraped) using a scalpel, or surgery to correct the position of the leg bones to reduce recurrence.

To avoid the formation of callus / clavus, you should use footwear with the appropriate size, use additional pad / foam, wear socks when using hard shoes.

Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
