A corn, or thickened layer of skin, often develops as the elevated part of the toe rubs against one’s shoes and can become inflamed or infected. “Patients may come in and ask, ‘Can you remove the corn?’ But it’s not really a skin problem — it’s a bone problem. The contracture has to be removed surgically,” said Dr. Jacqueline Sutera, a spokeswoman for the American Podiatric Medical Association. “Once you have it, the bad news is, it doesn’t just go away.”

She warned against using medicated corn remover pads and over-the-counter acid products to remove the corns, saying such remedies can be dangerous, especially if the corn is infected or the patient has diabetes or poor circulation. “We do not recommend those,” she said. “If it’s bothering you, see your foot doctor.”
