Cracked heel always look brown even after cleaning, is it hyperpigmentation?

Hi, all. I really need someone's expertise so that I can stop wasting time trying to figure this out. I'm losing it. Since the birth of my child 2 years ago, I have been getting constant heel fissures. I have tried debriding them, the baby foot peel, vaseline with plastic wrap, soaking, you name it. Nothing is working. They just keep cracking. I've spent so much money on trying to solve this. I thought I had a cure with the EZ peel, but it was too expensive to buy more pads so I opted for callus remover which is doing okay. The issue I have is that my heels are unsightly even when I get them looking decent enough and debride the dead skin there is what appears to be a permanent brown haze over the heel of my foot making it look dirty no matter how hard I scrub. It does looks 20% better when I debride it. If it is in fact hyperpigmentation how do I treat it? I thought it was the callus itself giving off this brown look, but I now know that it's not it's as though there are small traces of melanin deposits on the heel of my foot. Would there be a way to treat this and get the brown color to fade? Can I use bleaching cream to give it back it's normal color? I'm so tired of my feet looking like I've been back kicking dirt piles all day. I do not need one more thing about myself that I do not like. If you would like to see a photo I can add one, but be warned that my heel looks really bad. I just used the callus remover last night and I think I burned my foot a little.

Can you take a photo and post it somewhere and come back and post a link to it. Difficult to say without seeing what it looks like.
