How to play the guitar with sore fingers?

I’ve started playing my guitar again after several months and my fingers lost their calluses. After only 45 minutes my fingers are super sore but I really want to keep playing. How can I get them to, one, not be so sore and, two, callus faster? Thanks in advance!

Chosen Answer:

hurting yourself doesnt make you get callus faster. Take it from a guitarist, just play 30 minutes a day for about 3 weeks and then it will never hurt again.

    Just takes time to get those calluses. Then it won’t hurt anymore. Nothing will really make it happen faster. Destroying your fingers by playing too much could slow it down but sore is good.
