If you have a corn, home treatment might consist of soaking the foot in warm, soapy water, then using a pumice stone or fine emery board to file the surface of the corn. This should be done carefully and gently, so as not to damage healthy tissue. Wearing a doughnut-shaped pad can help ease the pressure on your corn.
If pain still persists, seek professional help. Never use a sharp instrument to cut or probe a corn.
Perhaps the most important and effective treatment for corns is finding and correcting the problem that caused the corn in the first place, whether it be deformity, disease, biomechanical dysfunction, or simply wearing the wrong shoes.
A thorough examination by a doctor of podiatric medicine can help determine whether your corns are caused or aggravated by other health problems and what remedies should be considered.
