Corn on foot under toe, blister. Used moleskin patch, Go for orthotics fitting?

I went to a podiatrist yesterday for a foot problem and while there he also treated a corn on the bottom of my foot under the little toe. He put acid and a moleskin patch on it and then covered with a bandaid. He said to keep it dry for 24 hrs and he would take care of the blister in 10 days when I returned for orthotics fitting. He said he would also remove the core then. My question is what do I need to do between now and then? Do I remove the bandaid and moleskin he put on and then do I keep a bandaid on it or what? Thanks for any help provided.
