I think if you leave it alone to heal, it will heal properly by itself. Why is it a callous in the first place? have you fixed the issue that is causing the callous?

You need to see a wound care specialist.  Foot wounds in people with diabetes need to be taken very seriously.   Otherwise they can result in amputations.

You say your blood sugar is good?  What is your hba1c?  the best outcomes for wound healing will occur with hba1c of as close to normal as possible.  Normal is < 5.0.

Typical ranges of blood sugar that are within normal range and give best healing will be about 70 - 120 (with fasting ideally < 95, and post eating peak numbers less than 120.

Hope this helps.
