In brief: Urea or lactic acid

Avoid ill-fitting shoes, use a pumice stone, use lotions that contain urea or Lactic Acid or glycolic acid to soften the skin.
Dr. Scholl's liquid corn and callus remover. Hold writing pen correctly and avoid squeezing hard. Type more, write less. Wear protective gloves when gardening and working with tools.

In brief: Depends on the cause

Many things can cause calluses.
Some reasons that one may develop a callus include: viral infections (warts), friction, pressure, repedetive 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.
