Treatment for corns involves relieving the pressure and then softening the painful spot. Relieve pressure on your littlest toe by either changing your shoes or putting pads in between your toe and your footwear. Our staff may recommend salicylic acid or other softening treatments to reduce the corn. Then your doctor at Dallas Podiatry Works can carefully cut away layers of that hard bump on your toe to help with the pressure. You should never try to do that on your own—you could seriously damage healthy skin by accident. If the corn has become infected, you may need antibiotics.
