Attach adhesive moleskin to your foot.
Moleskin can be trimmed down to cover the area your shoe rubs against. Depending on your skin tone, it may also blend into your skin, preventing others from discovering its presence. This solution works especially well when the problem is located at the back of your foot directly above your heel, or around the toe in a closed-toe shoe.

I have been suffering heel pain lately, but from my internet research, it seems to me more involved with the peroneal tendon (which runs under the ankle bone on the outside) and the Achilles tendon right at the insertion point of the heel. I have simply rested it a lot, barely running this week, and occasionally icing it.
I agree with the others that it is time for new shoes, and otherwise suggest you rest it, ice it, and perhaps some gentle massage/stretching of the calf.
Life is a headlong rush into the unknown. We can hunker down and hope nothing hits us or we can stand tall, lean into the wind and say, "Bring it on, darlin', and don't be stingy with the jalapenos."
