I have been suffering from 20 to 30 painful corns on my left foot. On the day of my operation someone asked me to use henna on it daily before operation and after 15 days all corns are cured and never developed again.

I had very painful corns or calluses on the outside portion of both feet and sanded them vigorously with my wife's foot sander. Then I used what my wife said the pedicurists use. A lemon zester. Both worked and I'm going to get my own tool. Pain free after 5 minutes of scraping. Amount of dead skin I removed wasn't even measureable. I am going to make a routine of it.

Going to the podiatrist and having the corns cut off was an effective treatment. When you walk out it feels like you have new feet.

My thirteen year old daughter suddenly developed a problem of corns under her right foot. One was surgically removed 3 months ago and the second has just been removed. Sad enough, 3 others seem to be developing. This is giving me problems as am not sure what to do next considering that she has to be operated upon every time the corn grows in size and so does the pain. I would really appreciate a cream or other medication that could assist other than surgical remove every three months.

I consulted an experienced and renowned doctor for corns. He prescribed Salactin paint. My friend found good results after using this for about 15 days.

Please eat two leaves of Ocimum sanctum also known as Tulsi every morning, on empty stomach before brushing your teeth. Within 10 days your corn calluses will go off from your skin without leaving a scar. This worked for me. Thank you.

For corns, I soak the foot in a bath of hot water, up to the ankle for one hour. One table spoon of dish soap is required.

I have a corn on my toe and it hurts so badly. I try to use the patch, and it didn't work. But what works for me is, I wrap my toe in a banana skin and the pain go away 70 to 80 percent next day, I will still be using this to see if the I got relief from corn.

I am an orthotist and I have been fabricating custom orthotic insoles for many foot problems but treating corns includes one of them. Offloading the pressure from the specific region of the corn ultimately results in treatment of corn.

I had suffered with a corn on my little toe for a few months. I could not wear a covered shoe for more than half an hour without pain worsening. Corn pads helped a bit, but using Wart-Off over the past three weeks, twice a day, has caused my wart to disappear.

Go to a podiatrist, It's good getting them to dig it out, and provides instant relief. It doesn't hurt as the skin around it is dead. I get one cut out every 3 months.

I'm an army officer and have been suffering from multiple corns for the last 5 years and have found no good treatment. I can't avoid certain things like running. At many points in time the situation for me is worse when doctors failed to provide remedy. T
