    Default Ugh, I have a corn!

    on my fourth toe, it is on the side.

    I've been putting Dr. Scholls treatments on it now for about a week...not going away.

    I know why we get them.....but what are they? Any better ideas to encourage it to disapear?

    I get them from time to time, and it's worse when I'm on my feet a LOT. My feet are kind of a mess - they're very flat and very wide, and it's hard to find shoes that fit well. Even if my shoes fit and are comfortable for long periods of time, I still sometimes get them. I haven't found a completely reliable way of preventing them in the first place.

    The Dr. Scholl's treatments have always worked for me - the ones that have a little medicated disc that goes on the corn. You put them on for several days in a row, and eventually the corn will turn white and the whole thing will peel off (kind of gross, but also kind of cool if you're a picker and you're into things like pus, as I am )

    Screw the wait, get a razor blade and cut the little bugger out. Alcohol first of course. Of the rubbing persuasion, both on blade and to clean suspect area first. Not of the drinking variety. I am not a doctor, nor do I play one on television, but I have no patience for something so painful.

    You just reminded me about some corn on the cob I have in the fridge and forgot all about it. I wonder if it's still good...

    Default Chestnut Pickers

    Those little discs have always helped my corns, but in case they don't, call for some of the chestnut pickers from a previous thread to come help you

    Seems to be a wee bit better today...put a new Dr. Scholl's disc on it last night.
