Greek term or phrase: σκληρύνσεις
Η αποτελεσματική περιποίηση και καταπολέμηση των κάλων και των διαφόρων σκληρύνσεων.
Σε 2 μορφές: ΥΓΡΟ (LIQUID) και ΚΡΕΜΑ (CREAM).
Μπορεί να χρησιμοποιηθεί το κάθε ένα μόνο του χωρίς να αποκλείεται ο συνδυασμός και των δύο. Η κρέμα συμπληρώνει την δράση του υγρού, μαλακώνοντας περισσότερο τους κάλους και τις διάφορες σκληρύνσεις.

Hard skin spot/toughened skin area
Explanation:
Το πρώτο πράγμα που μου έρχεται στο μυαλό:

" callus (or callous) is an especially toughened area of skin which has become relatively thick and hard as a response to repeated contact or pressure"

"Apply this to the hard-skin spots on your foot..."

Έβαλα και τα δύο για επιλογή ανάλογα με το register. To hard skin spot είναι πιο colloquial.

Οι σκληρύνσεις πιο επιστημονικά λέγονται και "υπερκεράτωση" (hyperkeratosis.) Hard skin όμως είναι το πιο απλό και κοντινό στη "σκλήρυνση".
