Thank you for your query on Healthcare Magic.

Corn usually present as a bump and there will be no hole in it.

Hole usually seen in lesions such as sinus tracts where some thing will come out.

X ray has to be done of that area to look for any sinus tract and involvement of underlying bone.

Consult the doctor for physical examination and evaluation.

Hope I have answered your query.
