Treatment Of Corns & Calluses

If you are not diabetic, use of pumice stone after bath is a simple method to rub and remove the hardened skin. You need to remove the hardened thick skin slowly by using a pumice stone everyday. You can also apply AHAs such as glycolic acid, etc. to slowly remove the corns and calluses. Keratolytic creams containing urea, salicylic acid or lactic acid can also be used. Talk to your doctor about what formulation is best for you. If the corn becomes painful, very thick and hard, your doctor may cut it. If there is a bone problem that is causing corns, your doctor may decide to cut that.
