If the prob­lem of corns has not passed into the chron­ic stage or you have encoun­tered it for the first time, you can try to local­ize it or grad­u­al­ly elim­i­nate it with fair­ly sim­ple means.

To do this, you will need a bath with warm water, foot cream, a good band-aid and a lot of patience. It will not be pos­si­ble to cope with this task at once. There­fore, the process of help­ing your­self will have to be repeat­ed sev­er­al times.

So, first — a warm bath. Hard­ened ker­a­tinized tis­sues need pre­lim­i­nary soft­en­ing. You can add sea salt or phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal herbs that have anti-inflam­ma­to­ry effects, such as chamomile, to the water. When the sur­face of the corn becomes soft­er, pro­ceed to gen­tly remove the upper stra­tum corneum with a pumice stone. Then you should treat the foot with a foot cream with soft­en­ing and mois­tur­iz­ing prop­er­ties. The range of such creams is very wide, the effect of the appli­ca­tion is the same on aver­age, so it makes no sense to give a spe­cif­ic rec­om­men­da­tion.

In con­clu­sion, you should close the prob­lem area with a band-aid. This is espe­cial­ly true if in the near future you have to put on shoes and go some­where on your own busi­ness. The prod­uct line of spe­cial­ized patch­es is also very large. For some of them, man­u­fac­tur­ers declare med­i­c­i­nal prop­er­ties.
