    I have around 5-6 corns only on my left foot for a couple of years now. I stopped playing tennis for awhile because I thought this was the cause, but apparently I still got more corns. I really want to remove them because they just get bigger and worse as time goes. I did a lot of research and I want to clarify this: I am not wearing tight-fitted shoes! I don't know why I keep getting them as I clean my feet every day thoroughly, and I wear a new pair of socks every day, and have well-fitted shoes. I think they come up from a hereditary disease because some of my family also had a bad foot history.

    Anyways, I am wondering how to completely get rid of them. I have been using salicylic acid for a long time in those over the counter corn removers, but they haven't done nil except make the area around my corns white. Does anyone have a tried and true way to get rid of corns on your feet?

    Go see a dermatologist he/she can help you much more than we can.

    Are you referring to plantar warts? They are normally treated with salycylic acid.

    If they are plantar warts, go to a podiatrist... and if they are not successful removing them with their method(s)... ask them about Cantharidin.

    Google it for more info.

    get a pedicure.

    they shave the corns off then scrub your feet so they're smooth. it's nice, even if you don't get your toenails painted. ;-)
