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. ...Read more
Lotion or surgery.: Corns and calluses occur because of pressure points. Surgery can fix this, but if you're not ready for that, trimming them down and regular use of lotion may soften them to the point they don't bother you. You can also try larger shoes that don't rub against the painful areas! Offloading orthotics can also help: see your podiatrist for casting. ...Read more

Prevent rubbing: Callouses and corns are the body's way of responding to friction and rubbing. They are common on the feet, when one toe rubs against another toe, or against a tight shoe. So, the first thing is to cover and protect the areas that are being rubbed with a piece of cotton or a bandaid, and then use a cream with urea and/or Hydrocortisone to soften the corn. It will take months to get better. ...Read more
Not so fast.: The word that for years has described calloused areas of skin on the feet is corn. It is nothing more that calloused tissue usually on or between the toes. People use the word to describe all sorts of calloused tissue on the feet. I have never been one to describe calloused tissue areas on the hand as corns. Having said that, people can get calloused tissue on just about any part of their body. ...Read more
Sock it up: Socks have very little or nothing to do with it. Corns are caused from pressure to the toe. Either the shoe is applying too much pressure to the toe from the outside or the bone is pushing outward from the inside. Either way, one must remove or reduce the shoe pressure by changing the shoe fit or style or one must remove the typically enlarged boney surface. You decide. I would try chinging shoes. ...Read more

When should a person with corn on his foot stop applying salicylic acid? Or what are the sign of cure of corns on feet while using salicylic acid?
Corns: Corns are caused by a hammer toe and enlarged bone under the corn. Salicylic acid does not cure corns. In fact salicylic acid can burn the skin. If there is a severe vascular problem or neuropathy, the acid can burn through the skin and create an open sore and eventually could expose bone in people who have lost nerve sensation. Professional care is recommended. ...Read more
I had corn on my finger, I put corn bandage (Salicylic acid). Later it became soft, I removed it. Later new skin developed, now the corns are back!
Recurrent corn: First of all, think about why did the corn form on your finger. Very likely there was a lot of stress on that part of your finger. Result is the corn formation. If you are still getting a lot of stress on that finger part, then you will get another corn despite your removing it earlier. ...Read more

I have corns on my toe next to my big one there is one on top of the toe and one of the side I've tried everything to get rid of them what can I do?
Decision Time.: Skin thickening, as you describe, is caused by pressure. The toe skin is being trapped between the toe bone, on the inside, and either the shoe or other toes on the outside. As more and more pressure is applied, the skin defends itself by thickening and your corn is formed. To remedy the problem you must either remove the outside pressure (shoes) or remove the inside pressure (bone). I pick shoes ...Read more
