Question
Hi, I am XXXXXXX from Bangalore, India. I had corn/calluses problem for feet cushion 5 months back. Initially treated with Salicylic acid. After 6 weeks, still corn/calluses were not gone. Doctor recommended removal procedure. So I have gone treatment for removal. Complete healing was taken nearly 2 months. But Still I'm getting pain same way. 3 weeks back I have shown to the same doctor (he is general Physician). He said it is infection. So he was taken some white liquid out by pressing out, It was not looks like puss. Currently, still I'm feeling pain. Constantly I'm unable to my feet down. Really I'm getting pain if I was keep my feet down more than 2 to 5 minutes. Please suggest good permenant treatment

Hi XXXXXXX XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.
I am Dr. Ratnakar Kini and I am pleased to answer your query.

There are two possibilities of this persistence of pain -
1. Incomplete removal of the corn
2. Infection ( less likely).

A course of antibiotics along with painkillers may be taken first to see if there is any relief.
If there is no relief, you may have to consult a surgeon for complete removal of corn.
Also as advised by your doctor you need to wear a MCR slippers as corn can recur if the slippers are nor soft to the sole of the foot.

I hope that answers your question.

Hi
You can use cap. amoxicillin 500 mg twice a day for 7 days and for pain relief you can take Dolo 650 ( take one tablet when you have pain).

I hope that answers your question.
