I have a similar... though different problem...Underneath my calluses I have these huge lumps/knots which the Doc says are calcium deposits...They are so big that my paddle sorta rolls back-n-forth over them which rips open my calluses...So unfortunately evey single time I paddle hard runs or play I have to tape them...consequently I have to then wear some type of glove to keep the tape on...& since I haven't found a glove that doesn't slip to some degree I end up using a fair amount of wax which in the end is fine but I hate the ritual... & I boat alot so the cost of good athletic tape is an issue....vicious cycle for me.. the knots do go down a little in the winter when not paddling quite as much but certainly don't go away...Boo Hoo! ha. I have no solution though the Doc said they could be removed but would be a surgical procedure & hec they may just come back....maybe theres an alternative homeapathic fix....maybe something like a wart remover or some strong HCL acid.....kidding...Oh well...

The extircation gloves I mentioned are ideal for paddleing everybody that I have paddled with that has tried them loves them. they are way better than any neophreme type glove, way more comfortable and they have elastic cuffs and are water proof with grip pads on the palms and fingers, go to any firefighter equipment site to find them, they come in all sizes also. I use "Cornhusker's" lotion to sooth callesed hands works real well.
I also use an ointment called "Corona" to soften calleses it is made for calleses on horses from saddle sores works great on sore hands.You can find it at any livestock supply store.

Micro planer

I use a micro planer (Wood working tool many people ues as a cheese grater). My doctor actually told me this. I have never had the problem of calcium deposits again after keeping up with taking them off. Also woks on the callouses I get from keens and Tevas.
