Corns are not a big health hazard, but can give a lot of discomfort and pain. Before you start fighting with them, you need to treat them with a pumice stone or a special shaver. By slightly breaking the top layer of a callus, you will attain a greater degree of penetration of simple but effective medicines.
1. Garlic ointment
3-4 crushed garlic cloves should be mixed with olive oil. That’s all you need to do to prepare the remedy! Apply the ointment at bedtime every day (for convenience, you can use a gauze bandage). After 3-5 days, the corn will get tender and will separate from the healthy skin easily and safely.
2. White vinegar
Soak a cotton swab into vinegar and tie it to the affected area of the skin for 2-3 hours. Repeat this procedure several times until you feel no pain. At the end of the course, it will be easy to remove the corn with pedicure tools.
3. Chamomile water
Infuse chamomile in water for 4-5 hours (the ratio is 4 tablespoons of chamomile per 1 liter of water). The resulting infusion is poured into a small container where your foot can be immersed. The procedure is repeated for a week, once a day.
4. Onion grater
Cut a small onion and rub the corn with it. The procedure is best done before bedtime and repeated for 3-5 days.
5. Lemon mustard plaster
Tie a piece of lemon to the corn every day and leave the bandage overnight. In about 2 days you will feel great relief, and after 4-5 days the corn can be removed.
