You can file them: With an emory board. The cause however, is usually prominent bones under the skin. A podiatrist can shave those bones and make them smooth again so that the problem should not occur even if you were to wear a shoe that was somewhat tight.

Over the counter products to treat this use salicylic acid to soften the corn. Also take pressure off the area by wearing loose shoes.

Corn: Dr kass has it right. See your podiatrist for an evaluation and x rays.
