A corny issue.

For the sake of those who had suffered long enough in silence... i shall put a few cues here on how to get rid of this corny situation once and for all, pun intended!

Corny Solution A
Wait for it to go off. This could probably take awhile, from a few months to a few years (i kid you not) but you could save the trouble of spending any MAHNAY. By then however, all you could think of is you should spend a lil time and effort and some $$$ to get rid of the darn FUDGERING corn. You wouldn't want to do that.

trust me, i did.

Corny Solution B
Get yourself a corn plaster from one of those handy 24/7 pharmacies.
Apply it as instructed
(aka place plaster with round spongy thinger directly on top of corn, surrounding it. )
After noticing that your skin is hardened and peeling (after a day or more from application) proceed to cutting and digging the skin around it till it's you reach a white center part and dig that out. Dip feet into warm water beforehand so it's easier to snip at it. Continue this process everyday until everything is cleared.

lHurts like Fudging Helll. This method is ineffective for me, but whatever.
it might work for you.
Most people i know recommends it.

My skin is however, extra thick and very very stubborn.

Corny Solution C
Aloe Vera. Snip a piece of Aloe Vera leaf off your mom's favourite "tong sui" plant, and apply exposed area (the wet wet one la) onto affected area on foot.
Never tried it, it's traditional.
Apparently it works. Maybe after, you could make yourself some nice HK feet tongsui.. Yummm..

Corny Solution D
Purchase Duofilm (Or hydrochloric acid, according to a friend) from the pharmacy. External use only, please do not swallow unless you're planning on taking your own life, if that's the case then feel free to do so (but you didn't hear it from me of course). Apply around infected area and a drip or two ON corn. Chant some self healing mantra, sleep it off and voila!
To speed process, PEEL AND CUT THE DWANG THING OUT. =)

again, pain factor remains unavoidable. Still, it's better than having that constant piercing pain. If you've had it, you would know it. ♥
