You will need some intervention. And that is possible only if you visit a dermatologist. What you think is a corn could also be a wart or even a callus. And only an allopathic dermatologist will be able to diagnose and treat you. Salicylic acid preparations if used without advise only worsen the situation and increase the irritation thus leading to pain and furthermore infection. Only oral medications won't help. So visit one.
