Sometimes a food challenge in a doctor's office can confirm if you are truly allergic to these foods. Allergy tests for foods often produce false positive reactions.

If corn allergy has produced GI symptoms will an allergy test confirm or will it not likely show up? And is it worth it to do an allergy test?

Go to an allergist: Allergy to corn is no common, but can be severe. The tests for allergy to corn are not reliable. If an allergy specialist feels it is required the only proof of corn allergy would be in oral challenge. But this should be performed under the guidance of an allergist trained in doing food challenges.

A corn: Is a buildup of dead skin. Kissing corns are when you have this on adjacent toes so a corn on one toe matches up with acorn on the opposing digit. The corns can be trimmed or pared away but will likely grow back once the person puts their shoes back on. Shaving down the underlying bony prominence is how to get rid of this. This is not done by you, rather by a foot doctor.

Stretching: Corns are caused by rubbing from shoes or surrounding digits. Contractures of the digits are the most likely cause. Wearing wider, deeper shoes help as well as open toed shoes. However to reduce the formation of corns, aggressive stretching of the tendons to the toes will help reduce the contractures and therefore the formation of corns. Supportive inserts may help to reduce contractures also.

How can I remove scars from corns?

How can I remove scars from corns?

OTC medications.: Scars are difficult to completely remove but they can be lightened with over the counter products like Mederma or vitamin e. The real cause of discoloration on the skin where a corn used to be is pressure from your shoes on a hammertoe. Surgical correction of the deformity is the definitive treatment. Otherwise, try wearing shoes with a deeper toe box.
