How Does A Doctor Remove A Corn From Your Foot
Cuts away dead skin: A doctor removes a corn by first cleaning the skin well. He may numb up the area with a lidocaine-type anesthetic if it looks like there may be pain involved. Then, he shaves away the dead skin forming the corn and callus, using a sharp scalpel blade. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Calluses: Corns/calluses form from friction against the skin, but also moisture is needed. On top of changing shoes and socks, try moisture control by using spray deodorant on your feet. This helps decrease moisture. Also file them down daily in the shower or use Vicks vapor rub to soften them up. Lastly, off-load the areas to take pressure off and prevent reformation. Hope this helps! Good lucks! Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
