I Have had what i think is a corn on the bottom of my foot for about 2 months or more now, i have medicated and it still want go away, and now have hit it on a rug in my home and it has ripped it half way out of my foot,it looks as if there is meat exposed and i'm worried it may get infected and i have no insurance do i need to go to the ER
Donot worry as the corn always goes like that...exposing tissue underneath which is pink...try and get it dressed or apply some bandaids to prevent infection ..it is ok to wash it and then dry it before putting on bandaid and it will take few days for new skin to cover it.....
