Hi, you can use salicylic acid creams daily once at night and use a foot scrub to clear off the skin next day morning while taking bath. But most of the times, it will not remove the deep part of corn. It only gives you some relief from pain. Please get it removed from a surgeon.

Hello. The corn cap has a mild acid based cream which causes superficial skin removal in case of hard skins. For painful Corns, this can never be a remedy. U have to get it surgically excise for symptomatic relief. And better to get it done by a podiatrist so that the cause and subsequent methods for preventing the recurrences are also guided.
