I have a hard corn on top of my toe. I tried using Dr. Scholl's medicated disks, but now my corn has a dark circle around it. It looks worse now than it did before I started using the medicated disk. How can I get rid of the dark circle around the corn?
The first thing you need to do is give yourself a corn pedicure. Fill a basin with warm water and soak your feet for 15 minutes. Dry your feet with a towel and file those corns away with a pumice stone or callous trimmer. A pumice stone with a handle will give you more control. This is the best way to obtain smooth feet. Home remedies include applying natural apple cider vinegar or chamomile tea to your corn with a cotton ball and covering it with duct tape or a Band-Aid overnight. You can also try applying lemon oil or papaya juice 2-3 times daily to your corn. Your final option is to see a podiatrist. A podiatrist will freeze the corn off, shave it away or remove it with acid.
