Home Remedies For Corns
- Consume raw vegetables and juices for three days to aid in balancing the acidity/alkalinity of your system. Umeboshi (Japanese salt plum) can quickly balance the body’s pH. These are available in health food stores and Asian markets. Take one every three hours for two days.
- Avoid fried foods, meats, caffeine, sugar, and highly processed foods.
- To treat corns and calluses, soften the thickened skin by adding 2 tablespoons of Dr. Bronner’s liquid soap (available in health food stores) or a mild dish soap to 1/2 gallon of warm water. Soak your feet in this mixture for fifteen minutes. Afterwards, dry your feet with a soft towel and rub a couple of drops of vitamin E oil into the
affected area. Then, using a pumice stone or a special callus file, gently file down the top layer of the corn or callus. Clean the area with mild soap and water, using a gauze pad or cotton ball, and apply a moisturizer to the area. Do this twice a day. Wear clean white cotton socks after treatment. This is effective only if the callus is not too thick.
- Apply a nonmedicated corn pad (a small round or oval-shaped foam pad with a hole in the center) around a corn to help to relieve the pressure. Stretch the pad so that it clears the corn by at least one-eighth inch on all sides. Then apply vitamin E oil to the corn, cover with a gauze square, and wrap the toe with adhesive tape. Alternate between using vitamin E oil and tea tree oil.
