There has been at least one poll concerning what people do to treat calluses, if anything.

In my case, I'm wondering if others have experienced a callus forming on the thumb of the bowing hand. I have one developing just to the side of the thumbnail, apparently from where it hits the joint of frog and the bow stick.

The old curmudgeon!

Never had a callus, but I do get an aching thumb and finger twitch at times, not sure though if its through violin or callisthenics.
