There are several corn treatment methods for foot corn removal, and some are better than others.
Here are some ways of how to get rid of corns on feet.
- Use Salvequick’s Corn Plasters with salicylic acid that effectively helps to remove corn on foot.
- Use a corn removal pen.
- Soak your feet in lukewarm water in 10-20 minutes until the skin softens. Then carefully use a pumice stone or foot file to remove the excessive hard skin from your feet. Finally, you should moisture the feet with a foot cream.
How do corn plasters work?
To treat corns effectively you could use a corn plaster containing salicylic acid, for example Salvequick’s Corn Plaster. In the center of Salvequick’s Corn Plaster there is an area containing salicylic acid which helps to remove foot corn and calluses. In addition, the plaster helps to reduce pressure or friction on the corn and thus help to relieve pain immediately (due to the cushioned ring around the center of the plaster). Be careful when using products containing salicylic acid and follow the instructions, since it can harm surrounding healthy skin.
What causes corns on feet?
Corns usually form caused by repeated use of badly fitting or tight shoes, or heels. For example, if your shoe repeatedly rubs against and puts pressure on an area on your foot then a corn may form to protect the skin from the friction.
How to relieve the pain
To reduce pain, you can use nonmedicated corn protectors such as corn cushion pads, toe sleeves or toe separators. For example, you can use Salvequick’s:
- Silicone Tube Protector for pressure relief and protection (in between the toes) against corns and toe chafing
- Oval or Round Corn Protector for prevention of friction and pressure relief
