In brief: May be mechanical
Many times this finding is secondary to mechanical irritation caused by adjacent toes rubbing together. Most commonly the 4th and 5th toes.
As the toes contract (hammer), the bones in the toes shift slightly allowing the bone in adjacent toe to rub leading to callus formation. This can become quite painful. See your podiatrist for an evaluation and treatment options. Dr l.

In brief: Dead white skin
You can use vaseline or a&d ontment just to lubricate the skin as dead skin is sure to fall off by itself and luricating will help the new skin to be healthy, .
You do not need any medicated cream or onyment unless you have underlying skin disease
