Corn is an accumulation of lifeless skin with a stiff and solid core that is visible generally around the toes. It cultivates due to frequent and recurring stress or pressure by rubbing of toes with the shoes. A Corn is a defence mechanism to protect the skin against abrasion. Corns that emerge on the edges of the toes form a rigid skin on the external area. These corns cause throbbing pain and the person is unable to walk properly and smoothly. In many cases, the corns may become develop an infection and can carry pus or liquid which causes excruciating pain. Many corns can be removed at home however in cases of complex situations eg diabetes, etc only a dermatologist can suggest the treatment. For infected corns, the doctor may prescribe antibiotics to avoid spreading of the infection to other parts of the foot. Corn removal treatment makes it mandatory for the patient to choose appropriate footwear to help remove and adjust the trauma caused by the corn. Corn treatment that is executed at home can be with conservative methods and for the ones that are milder in form can be treated with a proper use of pumice stone and by following strict personal foot hygiene. A corn remover is a doughnut-shaped padding that restricts the spread and growth of the corn on the other areas of the foot. Corn remover with salicylic acid softens the dead skin of the corn and avoids further growth.
