Hi, Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum.
Corn is a thickened layer of skin caused by repeated pressure or friction. Usually, preventing friction is the only treatment needed. If a corn is the result of a poor fitting shoe, wear shoes that fit properly, this will usually eliminate the corn within a couple of weeks. Until then, protect the skin with corn pads, available in pharmacies. If necessary, use a pumice stone to gently wear down the corn. You can also apply Benzoyl Peroxide 5-10% 1-2 times per day.
Take Care.
