Hard Area On Feet

7 posts in this topic

I have had a hard spot on the ball of my foot that sort of look like a callous, I also have one on the palm of my hand even though I dont do labour intensive work with my hands and I was wondering if this is related to the scleroderma, calcinosis nodules or something else all together.

Hi, Sharon. Calluses (or callouses) on the balls of the feet are quite common in the general populace and tend to get worse as we age and the soft tissue in the foot disappears. They are your body's way of responding to uneven pressure. I was given some othotic devices which were nothing more than a leather covered piece of padding attached to an elastic strap. They are quite helpful to wear around the house (when I tend to go barefoot), but I cannot tolerate them with shoes on. I also have some strange harder areas of skin on base and sides of my palms and on the extreme tips of my fingers which I do think is related to scleroderma (as does my rheumatologist). I can not see any connection between what I do daily with the position of this hardened tissue. Well, I type and rest my hands on the front of the laptop, but this action should not cause the degree of hardness that exists.


Warm wishes,

Jefa

Thanks for your reply, the hard parts on the sole of my feet, but the one that has me wondering is on the side below the little toe and at first I thought it was a plantar wart but it isnt, its sore and peels in sort of layers and looks a little like a digital ulcer but not quiet as bad. Since my Rhematologist is 4 hrs away I may just go and see what the general practitioner thinks though she knows little about it.

Smurfette,

Ouch, that cannot feel good. Please let us know what your Dr. says. I hope it is not an ulcer. Hey, maybe he'll put you on complete bed rest for a week...LOL.

Hi Sharon,

I too have a hard callous on my foot mine is on the top of the foot near the ankle, I have had it for nearly 18 months. If I pinch the area it is completely numb, sometimes it can be really itchy. It also has a very dry wrinkled appearance to it.

I'm not to sure what it is but thought I was the only one with it. :blink:

 

Kind regards

Celia

A quick visit lol they are never quick anymore, and confirmation that I have early calcinosis on the feet and on the hands, but again told lets just wait and see how things progress.

 

Thanks for the posts


Kindest Regards
