Detailed Answer:
Hi my dear,

When you use corn removal, it contains salicylic acid which will dissolve the keratin if corn, thus it will turn white and easy to remove.

At this point, you should be able to remove this dead skin. If not, continue applying the corn removal until you finally can get it off.

The rest, the normal skin will get healed by itself.
Let me know if you have other queries!
