Pumice Stone: Try using a pumice stone. If you are diabetic or have poor circulation, you should have it taken care of by your podiatrist.

Avoid OTC products. : Corns and callouses are caused by repetitive stress such as friction. Fixing there cause could be related to shoe and sock selection. Moisturizer your feet daily after bathing as this will keep the skin more supple.

Softening creams: Urea 40% cream or Ammonium Lactate Cream are both very good at softening painful corns and callouses. These can be found over the counter, although it's usually easier to get a prescription. They don't necessarily remove the corns, because they are caused by pressure. Pumice stone and offloading the area with orthotics or wider shoes help. Surgical correction is also sometimes necessary.
