It is probably a viral wart on the sole. this is commonly misdiagnosed as corn. it can recur after conventional surgery. you should consult a dermatologist. Cryotherapy, electro cautery or chemical cautery would help. you should wear microcellular footwear to reduce painIt is probably a viral wart on the sole. this is commonly misdiagnosed as corn. it can recur after conventional surgery. you should consult a dermatologist.

Hi!Deetha,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum,
Deetha , i am sure this is viral warts what you have.Since it is at multiple places and keeps recurring .Consult a dermatologist who can help you with a session of cryotherapy or electrocoutry .This usually happens when your immunity is low,so ask your doctor for a immunomodulator also .
take care,
