Corns are two types: hard and soft. Hard corns usually form on toes where skin surface is rubbing when we are walking, and sometimes they appear in our soles causing pain when we are walking.
Soft corns are moist and elastic and are formed between toes. And it doesn’t matter what shape they are or if they are soft or hard, corns are always painful. Instead buying expensive medicine to get rid of corns you should try natural remedies but they are extremely effective and corns can disappear, without the side effects of medicines, or worse, surgery.
1. Baking soda
One of the best ways to get rid of corns is baking soda and water. It will help to moisten dead skin and to heal the wound faster. Add 3 tablespoons of baking soda in a basin with 2 liters of water and soak your feet. You can also prepare a paste with 3 parts of baking soda and with 1 part of water.
2. Chamomile tea
Soak your feet in concentrated chamomile tea because it helps to sooth your pain and will change temporarily skin pH of the skin, helping to dry corn’s dead skin.
Soak a cotton ball in vinegar and apply it on your corns. Then let the cotton ball with vinegar overnight by keeping it tight with a bandage and in the morning rub the areas with a pumice stone.
Corns are very painful, and ice is sometimes the best solution to get rid of the pain. Ice will help you to reduce swelling and pain will go away.
5. Lemon juice
Prepare a paste with one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice and 5-6 tablets of crushed aspirins. Apply the paste directly on the corn and wrap your foot in a plastic bag. Keep it wrapped for 10 minutes then with the help of a pumice stone, rub gently the corn.
