Calluses may be unsightly or even annoying, but that doesn’t mean they’re always bad for your health since they offer protection, according to podiatrist Johanna Youner, DPM of Park Avenue Podiatry Center in New York. For example, in a healthy person, calluses, especially in the summer when wearing sandals, can help prevent blisters from forming, said Dr. Youner.

There are, however, instances when calluses can have serious health consequences. Dr. Youner warns, if someone suffers from diabetes, calluses can prevent them from feeling pain and can, thus, lead to health issues. “If you feel pain,” she warns, it is time to see a doctor.
