Home Remedies For Corns

  • Liquorice is one of the most valuable remedies for corns that are just appearing. A paste made by grinding three or four liquorice sticks and mixing it with half a teaspoon of sesame oil or mustard oil should be rubbed into the hardened skin at bedtime. The skin gradually softens and the com decreases in size.
  • The milky juice of green figs is valuable for corns of long duration. It helps to soften them. Half a teaspoon of this juice may be extracted from the fruit and applied two or three times daily.
  • Chalk, powdered and made into a paste by adding water, is very when applied on a corn at bedtime.
  • Raw papaya is beneficial in the treatment of corns. Its juice is an irritant and it is, therefore, a useful application in this condition. Half a teaspoon of raw papaya juice may be applied thrice daily.
  • Apple cider vinegar Soak a small piece of cloth in vinegar and bind it on the toe; leave it on day and night. The corn will come out by the root. Another variation is to soak the feet in a shallow pan of warm water with half a cup of the vinegar. Rub down the corns and calluses with a clean pumice stone.
  • Rub castor oil onto the affected area for two or three minutes twice a day.
  • Medicinal corn- removing plasters, known as corncaps, are easily available with chemists. They are found to be effective.
