To ease the pain of a corn, you can use a corn pad to remove the excess pressure. Corn pads are donut shaped cushioned plasters with a hole in the centre for the corn sit in and to protect it from chaffing.
Corns are easily removed using an ointment like Kroko Corn and Callus remover which has been a tried and trusted remedy since the 1930s or a medicated Corn Plaster which contains a dose of salicylic acid in a corn protector which protects and cushions the corn while treating it. Kroko CornFix is a liquid application which covers and treats the corn and comes packed with 6 corn protectors which can be used during treatment.
To get rid of a corn:
1. Soften the corn by bathing in hot water.
2. Dry thoroughly.
3. Please note. It is important to mask the area surrounding the corn to protect the healthy skin, either by covering the area with a piece of adhesive plaster in which a hole the size of the corn has been cut or use a suitably sized adhesive corn ring. Alternately protect the healthy skin around the corn with a layer of Vaseline. The corn will then be exposed in the open hole in the centre of the plaster or Vaseline.
4. Apply the ointment so that it covers the exposed corn.
5. Cover the corn with a second piece of plaster or a corn protector.
6. Change the dressing every second day until the corn peels off in layers. It usually takes about 8 days for the corn to be removed but resistant cases may take longer. Do not administer the ointment for longer than 14 days.
*WARNING: Do not apply to healthy skin or near the face and eyes.
Always read the instructions
