That depends on where they are. The callous layer of skin responds to pressure, friction, and heat and produces the corn/callous. Removing the source of irritation will help. If the source is two bones rubbing the skin between them, this is harder to resolve. See your foot doctor for the easiest plan to help. Often a cream will help soften the area.

Corns of your toes are usually a symptom of either an enlarged or malpositioned joint such as that seen with a hammertoe deformity. Shaving the corn only provides temporary relief. If the toe is bent or contracted correction of the toe with surgery to realign it straight is effective at eliminating the corn permanently.
