Wearing comfortable shoes and socks — Corns can be prevented or will often go away when you eliminate the rubbing and friction that causes them. Wear well-fitting, cushioned shoes until the corn disappears. Choose socks that fit properly and are made of a polyester-cotton blend, which wick moisture away better than all-cotton socks do.
Wearing nonmedicated corn pads — These cushion and protect skin from friction, allowing time for corns to diminish in size. Be careful using over-the-counter liquid corn removers or medicated corn pads, which contain salicylic acid and can irritate healthy skin and lead to infection.
Gradually rubbing it away — After bathing, gently rub off a layer of thickened skin with a washcloth or pumice stone. Don't remove all of the toughened skin at once. Rubbing away a corn may take a week or longer. Don't try to cut or shave down a corn as this may lead to an infection.
Moisturizing your skin — Apply moisturizer to hands and feet to help keep your skin soft.
If you have corns that are painful or inflamed — or recur or persist despite home care — see your doctor or a foot care specialist, who may suggest medical treatments that can provide relief such as cauterisation...excision of corns.
