Brief Answer:
Surgical removal will help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.

Corns that are painful and are causing you such distress during your routine work need to be surgically corrected. Nonsurgical treatments such as rest and wearing loose (wider) shoes or sandals can often relieve the irritating pain.

Oral painkillers and local cold-pack application are sometimes helpful as well. You can also apply Corn cap or topical sialic acid to remove it. In case the corn is infected then oral antibiotics may be needed. Do consult a surgeon and get it surgically removed for relief.

I hope this answers your query.

In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.

Wishing you good health.
Regards.
Dr. Praveen Tayal.
