    Your foot corn treatment options

    Scholl provides a range of products for treating corns on your feet.

    With the Corn Express Pen you apply the softening liquid daily, which breaks down the hard skin of the corn. Alongside this, you simply use the scraper to exfoliate the top layers of the corn once every three days. This reduces the thickness, quickly reliving both the pressure and the pain. You should be able to see visible results within just five days.

    As its name suggests, the Scholl Complete Corn Treatment Kit is a complete kit for the relief and removal of painful corns. The kit contains Salicylic acid, a keratolytic which breaks down corns. 1 The soft cushioning pads offer pain relief, protect the healthy skin surrounding your corns and provide continued pressure relief and cushioning.

    To use, remove the medicated disc from the backing paper and place it firmly over the centre of the corn. Cover the disc with the pad and fix it with straps. Repeat every day until the corn can be removed. It is important to note that this product should be avoided if you have cracked or broken skin on or around the corn, or fragile skin. Also avoid issue if you have a condition that causes problems with circulation, such as diabetes or peripheral arterial disease.

    If the corn is particularly hard, consider a corn removal 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 removal easier. 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 ready to be removed.

    If you find your corn is more severe and the skin is very thick on and around it, you should seek medical assistance. A podiatrist may be able to cut away some of the thickened skin using a scalpel. This can help to reduce the pressure on the tissue underneath. It is very important not to try to cut the corn yourself, as you may make it more painful and it could become infected.
