Proper fitting shoes: Shoes rubbing on toes cause corns. Shoes with high toe boxes will reduce and/or eliminate pressure.. Soft leather inside and out is also helpful. Shoe with cushion nylon linings will irritate toes and should be avoided. Over the counter corn remedies contain acids and just irritate skin and can cause a chemical burn if not used properly. Apply creams to soft skin.
