Medicated pads are not
recommended by the American
Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons.
They irritate the skin unnecessarily
and may cause infection.
Non-medicated corn pads relieve the
pain and do no harm, but they will
not resolve corn problems.
Corns are simply the build up of dead skin cells that
frequently appear on your feet due to excessive
rubbing from ill-fitting shoes. The best way to
prevent corns is to wear sensible and comfortable
footwear. If you already have corns, soften them in
warm water, dry completely, and then rub off the
dead skin. Repeat until gone. A myriad of home
remedies purport to remove corns and they are all fun
to try. Good luck in your campaign against corns.
Corns are thickened skin that appears as a cone shaped mass, often yellowish
with a dark inward center. They start small but will grow as pressure and friction
repeatedly injure the skin. Larger corns can become quite painful and can
become ulcerated. Hard corns appear on the top of your toes and bottom of your
feet while soft corns can show up between your toes.

much rubbing and friction.
Rub them off. It is that simple. Corns are nothing but dead skins so why not
to doing so and it takes a little patience and diligence. Soak your feet in a
warm solution and Borax for 15-20 minutes to soften the skin. The boric acid in
Borax is a very weak acid that will exfoliate the dead skin cells. Take an emery
board, pumice stone, file or even sandpaper and gently remove the soft,
loosened portion of the corn. Repeat this process daily until your corns have
disappeared before your very eyes.
Why, why on earth do people wear tight-
tipped, high-heeled, poorly-fitting and
oftentimes homely footwear? Vanity, stupidity
and excellent shoe salespeople are the top
three reasons. It’s time to stop the madness
of shoes and boots that grind against your
feet in the most bothersome of places. Do not
wait until corns become painful reminders of
your poor choice of footwear. Be reasonable
with your shoe selection and you will be corn-

kills the top layers of skin and make it harden. Fortunately, getting rid of
corns is a simple as the reason they exist.
