It may be helpful to visit a podiatrist for treatment of calluses.
The important thing is to relieve the pressure on the affected area of skin.
Choose well-fitting, comfortable, flat footwear
Apply a protective corn plaster or cushion to apply pressure more evenly around the affected area to reduce friction
Sandpaper, file or pumice the surface (this is easier when the skin has been soaked in warm water for 10 minutes or longer)
Apply keratolytic creams or heel balms containing urea, salicylic acid or lactic acid - ask your pharmacist to suggest a suitable product.
