I wouldn't worry too much, unless you are having inflimation, especially around the bone. If that area gets too inflames, and you continue to cause damage to it, calcium deposits will build up and they'll begin to adhere to your toe, causing you much discomfort.

Calluses aren't nessessarly bad, but they are indicitive of some sort of improper fit issue. If you can, get the area punched out a bit to releive the pressure, which is erring on the side of caution, but a good idea if you continue to have discomfort. Last thing you want to do is have an issue where bone begins to grow on your toe, because it'll lead to signifigant fit issues if not properly taken care of.
