Does anyone else have a callus on the palm side of their hand right behind their wedding ring?
And with my ring, when I'm shooting or doing any sort of heavy lifting, I pretty much have to take it off or the edge of the band digs in right there, and sometimes even cuts me. My band is a little wider than most probably are, and has a thinner edge.
What the hell causes that...and before anybody says "masturbation", I'm right handed.
The ring could be rotating on your finger, or you may be having some type of reaction to the ring. Try sterilizing it and your finger or washing with antibacterial soap, Hibiclens is a pretty good one and you get it at Walgreens, CVS, etc..
Could be the shape of the ring itself, or the way it's sized to your finger, or even the shape of the skin at the base of your ring finger. Could be a lot of things.
Since it's a callous, I just sort of of got used to it. Even when I'm not wearing the ring, you can still see the 'band' around my whole finger. That's what 30 years will do...
Hm. Checks. Nope. Interesting, though.
I actually have a small bone spur on the ring finger of my left hand. Made wearing a wedding ring uncomfortable to the point that I took it off at night.
Not an issue now.
No noticeable ring callus here, but all of both of my hands are slightly callused where the palm meets the fingers because of toting gear at work.
20-something years ago I used to have a pronounced callus on the outside of my right pinky finger because the servo grips on the old broadcast lenses weren't very ergonomic. These days they're all space-age smooth so there's only a slight callus in that same spot now.
