Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
The corn occurs due to Pressure and friction from repetitive actions, like
Ill-fitting shoes or tight fitting shoes. Not wearing socks, Wearing shoes and sandals without socks can lead to friction on your feet. Socks that don't fit properly also can cause them. Until the cause is treated no medications will help. You will have to avoid the cause. Get yourself examined by a General Surgeon, who will examine your feet and rule out warts or cysts. Your doctor may also request an X-ray to see if a any physical abnormality is causing it.
The treatment Options include, Trimming the, Applying Salicylic Acid creams, antibiotic ointments and in rare cases Surgery might be advised. So consult your Doctor and go for regular follow up. Apply moisturizer to our yhands and feet to help keep your skin soft. Wear comfortable shoes and socks. Soaking your hands or feet in warm, soapy water softens them.
Wish you Good Health, Take Care.

Hello Dr., I am having a corn in my right foot at the very base for the 3rd time. I got it removed for 2 times by undergoing a local surgery. I am not sure, what to do. I have still not consulted any dermatologist. I have also applied a corn cap and the skin has become yellowish. Will it be advisable to apply a corn cap and remove it by myself at home ? or should i consult a dermatologist first and take his advise ? or is it advisable to again undergo a surgery and getting it removed ? Kindly suggest the best advise of the three. Also do any of the home treatments like Lemon pils applying on the infected area, applying Cloves on the infected area do work and are advisable. Thanks, Tariq Pathan from Bangalore
