Trim callouses down so they stand less chance of tears to start with; I think there is a thread on here somewhere that I put up about how to go about that.

Surgical spirits rubbed on to skin will toughen the area up; also ideal for heels, where runners and blisters are concerned etc.

If you do get a tear, keep it moist because moist tissue heals faster hence the reason that injuries inside the mouth do actually heal even though we can't/don't put plasters on them; I find the best way to ensure that small wounds stay moist is to use a lip balm stick on them.
