A corn usually forms on the feet by dead skin buildup. They tend to sprout between the fingers and have hard center cores that are painful. It may occur by constant rubbing of one toe with the other, or a wrong shoe that has irritated your skin.
If you want to get rid of a corn formed on your toe, here’s how you can:
- Start the process by soaking your feet in warm water for at least 10 minutes.
- With the help of a pumice stone, rub over the corn gently.
- Repeat this process a times before the corn loosens and falls off.
If your corn has become too strong and hard and is not coming off from this technique, try this other home remedy:
- Fill a basin with warm water.
- Add 3 tablespoons baking soda to the water.
- Soak your feet in this water for at least 20 minutes (or more).
- Take your foot out and rub the corn with a pumice stone.
- Rinse again and then pat them dry.
- Apply castor oil on your feet to moisturize them.
- Repeat this process daily to loosen the corn.
