how to heal my calluses on my knuckles?

Sure it's calluses?

Calluses_and_corns
Callus formation is typically due to chronic mechanical pressure on an area of skin. Be sure of the diagnosis with your physician. It may be warts or other skin conditions that can mimic callouses. For calluses filing down the dead layer of skin after soaking them in warm water with Epsom salts works well and should not cause any pain.

Many things can cause calluses. Some reasons that one may develop a callus include: viral infections (warts), friction, pressure, repetitive trauma, and a limitation of joint motion. Some genetic conditions may also cause people to develop calluses on the hands and the feet. Treatment depends on the cause of the problem. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

small itchy bumps on my knuckle?

Itchy bumps

Open-uri20120808-28375-1dhspgd
Small bumps can occur on the skin for a variety of reasons, but when they are "ichy" it is usually an indication that they are a "reaction" to something - an "allergy". You may be allergic to something that your skin is coming in contact with like a soap or lotion - could also be clothing. Try to find out what is causing the reaction, eliminate it, and see if it gets better. Steroid cream may help

Dr. Brock Andersen answered:

What does cracking my knuckles do?

Knuckle cracking

Painful_joints
I am not sure anyone knows for sure, but the phenomenon is thought to be related to gas (maybe carbon dioxide) forming bubbles in the synovial fluid from your joints, being released suddenly upon manipulation. There is no evidence to support that it causes arthritis or any other sequelae.
