Sal acid plaster: 1) keep pressure off the corn, especially avoid too-tight shoes. 2) use donut-shaped corn pads to help keep pressure off a corn. 3) salicylic acid plasters, like mediplast, applied directly on the corn can soften and make it less painful. 4) corns can be pared, especially after they're softened by a salicylic acid pad. 5) a corn could be from an underlying bone spur, possibly needing surgery.
