Hi,
Corns and calluses occur on parts of the foot and sometimes the fingers. Corn can be painful to walk on, even when they are small.
Common locations for corns are, on the sole, over the 'ball ' of the feet.
Corns between the toes are often whitish and messy, they are sometimes called " soft corns ", in contrast to the more common "hard corns " found in other locations.
A corn or callus is defined as an area of thick, hardened, deadskin. They typically form on the bottom or sides of the feet and and , if left understand, can become painful or infected.
Follow these steps for home treatment only.
1.Identify the location of the callus.
2.Take a shower or bath and clean your feet throughly.
3.Use a pumice stone [ a salt and pepper looking exfoliating stone ] to gently exfoliate the skin on and around the callus.
4.When the callus becomes painful or causes difficulty when you walk, purchase corn pads.
5. Most pads have good, strong adhesive and can withstand the riger of walking and moving about. However , if you have trouble keeping the pad on your feet, try using medicinal tape.
6. Use an emery pad.
7.Use castor oil as a softner with a corn pad as protector.
8.Try socks have very thick, cushined soles.

1. Corn always develop secondary to friction and pressure, any cause of repeated friction and pressure on foot? (tight fitting foot wear, high heel of shoes, too much moisture,dirty foot,use of hard sole, any bony prominence (bunion) or toe deformity(hammer toe)??

2. as family history is there, probably it is 'hard corn' unless proved otherwise on examination.

3. any problem with poor circulation, your hemoglobin level-blood sugar level thyroid profile?

4. reason they keep coming back is because 'CAUSE' is still there and that cause is PRESSURE, if pressure is not removed they will keep coming back.

5. use correct fitting of footwear around the toes, use of pads to relieve pressure, use insoles and insert in your shoes to combat pressure points and rubbing.

6. change your socks everyday, don't let your feet become sweaty, instead of body lotion use a moisturizing cream after proper washing and drying, make sure your shoes and socks are well fitting.

7. rubbing raw papaya juice on the corns is beneficial, add ginger,lemon, garlic,onion,fenugreek,neem,raw fruits,bitter gourd in your diet helps reducing recurrence of corns.

8. seek an opinion of orthopedic if corns are recurrent.
