Thank you for your question. Callouses develops in areas where there is increased pressure or friction. Thickened, discoloured nails are often due to damage to the nail and nailbed which also makes it more prone to contracting a fungal infection. I would strongly recommend that you see a podiatrist that would be able to reduce the callouses/ hard skin and also advise on the correct treatment of your nails as well as reduce the thickness. For your nearest podiatrsit contact PASA (podiatry association of south africa) or 0861 100 249
