Corn Treatments Explained

There are several different ways you can treat corns, and which method you choose may depend on its severity.

To treat a corn, Scholl provides an all in one product: the 2 in 1 Corn Express Pen. All you have to do is to simply use the scraper to exfoliate the top layers of the corn once every three days and alongside this to apply the softening liquid daily to breaks down the hard skin of the corn. This will reduce the thickness, quickly reliving both the pressure and its associated pain. You should be able to see visible improvement within just five days.

If you find your corn is more severe and the skin is very thick on and around the corn, medical assistance may need to be sought. A podiatrist may provide other treatment which may help to reduce the pressure on the tissue underneath the corn.

Another option for hard corns is a plaster. Scholl’s Corn Shield Gel Plasters use Hydra-Guard Technology to relieve the pressure on the corn. The outer shield protects the corn from friction and rubbing, while the soft gel island provides extra cushioning and provides water to the corn, making it easier to remove it. Before placing the plaster on the corn, make sure the skin is clean, dry and free of oils and creams. Repeat the treatment once a day until the corn is adequately softened.
