I have never tried it but what about the foot lubricant stuff that keeps your feet from chaffing?  I can’t remember the name of it right now.

Also, you need to make sure that your shoes aren’t too tight.  That is the main cause!

ha ha, this is my forte! i’m a podiatric assistant! lol, to make corns not come back, you have to stop wearing or doing whatever is causing them! bummer i know!!! depending on where your corn is, sometimes it’s do to what’s called a bone spur, and pushes the skin out and makes it more prone to a corn… if you can’t stop wearing those shoes, try corn pads(they don’t look any better than a corn thought), or just keep removing them every few days.. you can visit a podiatrist and they can take x-rays if they feel it is a bone, and can usually remove it in a minor same day surgery.

some corns can be caused by shoes being too tight, but some aren’t. i get them where my pinky nail rubs against my 4th toe.. some people get the where their toe touches the top of the shoe, some get them where the sides of their feet touch the outside of the shoe. it is always a good idea to have your feet measured, but wearing shoes that are too big can cause just as many problems as wearing shoes that are too small… try stretching the shoe out where the corn in forming is also a ery common practice!

the pill is not the only option, but it is very effective.. they do have a new treatment(which we don’t have in our little po-dunk town) which is laser, it’s supposed to be painless and very effective and many insurances even pay for it. to get rid of fungus, and if you don’t want to go to the doc right now, by some fungus killer for your nails and put it on as directed. wearing nail polish and closed toed shoes or shocks can cause fungus to multiply, you are giving it a nice dark(polish/socks/shoes), warm, wet(yes your feet sweat it shoes!) place to live, try no polish to see if it helps. if you are young a healthy the pill is pretty safe though( but you’ll still want to go sans polish), you can also have a supe simple blood test done every once in a while to see if it is affecting your liver function, and if it is stopping it will usually make your liver enzymes return to normal(damaged liver=high liver enzymes, which are shown through a liver panel!) hope this helps!!

ooh, i forgot to tell you, you should have your nails clipped and sent to a lab to test for fungus, sometimes it looks like you have fungus and you really have whats called dystrophic nails which is cause sometimes by decreases blood flow or trauma! fix it now thought cause sometimes it can damage your nail bed, and it’s just gets worse!

SweetheartDealer – apparently i lied to you, that laser isn’t yet fda approved so insurance won’t cover it, it’s $800 – $1000 per treatment and it can take several treatments
