Hello,

I read carefully your query and understand your concern.

Corns will continue to cause pain and discomfort until they are removed, but they can be successfully treated with nonprescription products in many instances.
The only ingredient proven safe and effective for unsupervised self-use is salicylic acid.
So,you can continue using salicylic acid to treat the corn.

Hope my answer was helpful.

If you have further queries feel free to contact me again.

Kind regards!
