Do corns need to be treated?

Corns can be painful when they press on sensitive nerves in the surrounding skin, which may become red and inflamed. Their hard, waxy core, which bores down into the skin and press on the underlying tissue and nerves, can cause extreme pain.

How  do you treat corns?

Taking away the pressure or friction can reduce the pain in the short run, but to remove corns, a specific treatment is needed. In many situations, calluses and corns can be prevented by reducing or eliminating the circumstances that lead to increased pressure at specific points on the hands and feet, for instance by wearing well-fitting, comfortable shoes. Compliance is often a problem during treatment because many of the treatments available without prescription take a long time for complete removal and are inconvenient to use. Wartner offers the latest innovation in corn removal, the Corn & Callus Removal Pen, offering fast removal in tandem with an easy to use device based on unique TCA acid gel.
