Welcome to icliniq.com.

Corns can be painful by themselves, but more so if they are infected. Try to do the following measures:

1. Use padded footwear at home and outside, use silicon feet pads inside shoes.

2. Try corn caps which are like band-aids. Leave each one on for as long as they stick, which is usually for a week or so. Slowly over three to four weeks, the corn will soften and fall off.

3. You can take tablet Combiflam (Paracetamol, Ibuprofen) if the pain is severe as and when required after consuming food.

4. Use warm compresses over the corn in severe pain.

If the above measures do not work, the corn may be infected, and you may require antibiotics. If pus has collected in it, it needs to be drained. So if there is no improvement, kindly consult a general surgeon.
