I HAVE THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!  I never take my rings off, though, and probably won’t even if the callous hurts.  Mine kind of comes and goes – it’s always rougher on that spot, but it doesn’t always hurt.

I don’t have one & I wear my rings 24/7. I even sleep in them. Maybe your skin is sensitive? It looks painful. ๐Ÿ™ Maybe wear a band aid until it gets better & see if it comes back? So you can still where your rings. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

I hope it gets better soon!!

I wear my rings 24/7 and I don’t have a callous. my hands are the soft, sensitive type too- easy damaged. 

do your stones twist to the side so the prongs rub on your finger?  I hate to say it but the callous might come back as soon as you put that ring back on. I wonder if you could get the rings slightly modified so that they are not so irritating (but I don’t know what that would be).

I have never had this.   But, I also do not wear my rings 24/7.  I know a lot of people never want to take them off, but sleeping in them can cause prong damage.  Many stones are lost  in sheets, never to be found again, lol.  And cleaning or dishes in rings… very hazardous, expecially if you want the stones nick free to plass down in 50-60 years.  Just something to consider, and it may keep callouses at bay too.  ๐Ÿ˜‰

I guess I should have mentioned that the only reason I have a callus on my pinky is because my ring spins around constantly.  If it didn’t do that, I wouldn’t have one.  I’m not resizing it because it’s hard to get on and off and feels tight in the summertime.  Sure right now it’s spinning all over the place, but it’s not going to fall off so I’ll learn to live with it.  Oh, and it’s extremely sharp.  We joke that it’s my weapon every time I accidentally scratch my FI!

You can get a ring snuggie, I think Walmart has them.  Or, you can do  DIY sizing beads with a hit glue gun. It will snug up the ring in winter, and then you can just peel them out in summer.

Ouch! Your skin must be more sensitive. I wear my ring all of the time and it has never happened to me. Sounds like you’re doing the right thing though, chapstick doesn’t sound like a bad idea.

i doubt if it would form a corn. calluses are extremely common among artists and musicians. playing an clairinet for 7 years, led to a callus on my thumb. constantly drawing now, i have a callus where my pencil hits my fingers. it’ll be a good thing once it’s totally formed, won’t hurt at all, and the skin should toughen up enough there so that you can keep wearing your rings without this problem.
