I am inquiring for a friend that has such thick callous' on his hands that even using a keyboard is difficult. He has had this since birth and he is at his wits end because it is effecting his chances of getting jobs. He has tried everything. He even soaked his hands in lotion and when to bed in gloves only to find that the calluses had turned green and nasty by morning. I have seen him file them off on monday and there would be a 1/16th of an inch of callous on his palms on friday.
He is in constant pain from the callus's on his feet but he walks miles each day just to find a job. He has had them removed and like the ones on his hands, they grow right back.
Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Re: Hyperkeratosis
The thickening and hardening of the skin of palms and soles can be controlled with usage of homoeopathic medicine. Remedies like thuja, sulph, medorrhinum, antim crud, ranunculus bulb and hypericum help in slowing the progression of the skin into thickened areas.
