Dear Sam
This is usually caused by a bone in the foot that isn't normal and causes abnormal pressure on the skin of the foot - it is best to see a podiatrist as you may need a special insole to wear. The podiatrist can also remove the callous for you (doing it youself may cause serious injury). Ask your GP or look in the yellowpages for one near you.
