I'm of the opinion (different to many of these posts, I know) but 'mechancial' means of cutting, scraping and peeling of skin makes it worse. The skin will thicken and harden becuase of the treatment, and will start protecting itself for the next treatment, like a callous on your hands if you're doing something repeditive like shovelling.
Eucalol Heel Balm Gold is the best I've found, sleep with the cream and socks if possible (hot climate might be prohibative?) and gently exfoliate with a good scrub. Also agree that shoes with a closed heel would be better than thongs.
Best of luck!

I read online that soaking your feet in epsom salt bath can really help, I bought the salt a while back but keep forgetting to do it
Apparently a 30 minute soak will take off the worst of the dead skin, and I guess then the cracks could be treated with some balm if needed. I don't think the salt will sting at all, I have soaked open wounds in salt before and it doesn't sting
here's a link
