Thanks for using this forum....

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 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.....

take care...
