How To Get Rid Of Corns
Getting rid of corns may be something you need if you have been wearing shoes or other footwear than restrict the position of your feet. Corns are caused by dead skin forming around the irritated tissue on your toes. They are also caused by dried up blisters on your toes.
How to prevent getting them is easier than how to get rid of corns on toes. Wearing loose footwear is the best way to prevent them. Try to avoid narrow shoes since they tend to pinch your toes into a very uncomfortable position. They also produce a lot of friction between your toes and the interior of the shoes as well as your other toes. If you already have corns and want to get rid of them you could soak your feet in a mixture of warm water, iodine, and boric acid.
This mixture will help to remove dead skin cells from your feet and to soften up any remaining corns. You should rub your corns with a dry cloth or use some sand paper. Sand paper may sound a bit extreme but is really effective. Before you go to bed try pouring some lemon juice on your corns. You can also put some slices of lemon inside your socks and place them in such a way that when you wear your socks they will be in contact with your toes.
Please ask your chiropodist for more information about foot care on any of the above conditions.
