Dear Shasha

It sounds like you have a combination of calluses and athletes foot, a fungal skin condition. Use Lamisil Once, available from the pharmacy without a prescriptoon to get rid of the itchy infection and then use a pumice stone or similar to reduce the hard skin. Also, use a good foot cream with anti-fungal properties to keep the hard skin from returning.

it' s best to see your closest podiatrist! They will advise you on what to do. she / he might also remove all the dead skin because there could be some immflamation underneath. That' s what my pod does... and i step out her office with baby soft feet. It' s only about R240 for the session. good luck.
