My mother is a diabetic patient. Corn keeps on appearing again and again under a specific part of her feet. The probable cause of it was a slippers which is has changed just after the 1st time the corn appeared. We have tried to apply corn caps available in the medical stores and after few days tried to remove the dead portion using scalpel. The corn cap consist of some ayurvedic med and not salycylic acid so we thought it to be safe. But again the corn has appered. Need suggestion for complete removal of the corn. Is this any kind of symptom for any other med condition?????

A diabetic having corn in the sole is never solicited. There may be hidden ulcers under the corn. Ideally it should be sliced out by a scalpel blade to look for ulcers. This procedure is usually done by podiatrist or diabetics specialist.
She should under go for foot
print mapping and wear medicated shoes. You must rule out neurological involvement of the legs. It is very common among diabetics.
She should always wear covered shoes and examine her leg every day for cracks and fissures.
Diabetic foot care is an entire subject of its own.
