In brief: Easy

Corn in the foot is one of the most common condition ( and annoying ) that cause pain in the foot.
If over the counter medications are not helping simple removal in your doctor ( or dpm ) is the cure.

In brief: Local treatment

Long term success does rely on diagnosing the reason from the corn.
However, in the short term, debriding or shaving down te callus ( or using otc corn treatments) and then properly padding the areas to avoid pressure or rubbing (look at hapad.Com for some useful devices) will make it much more manageable.

In brief: See a podiatrist

You need to see a podiatrist to determine the underlying cause of the corn.
