Instead of dealing with corns and calluses and withstanding pain, you can use some simple home remedies to treat it. Keep reading to know more.
Now, most of us really don't know much about corn or calluses. Corn or callus is a layer of hardened skin that develops on the skin to protect it from friction and pressure. They usually develop on the palm or soles of the feet. Now, both are very similar and most people cannot differentiate between the two. There is a very slight difference between these two things. Corn is usually a bit painful, while a callus is not. These things are not dangerous to health, but cause enough pain and discomfort and irritation. The best way is to treat corn and calluses with an over-the-counter treatment or you can look for a better and natural solution using home remedies to keep your feet hydrated and prevent and reduce corn and calluses.
Here are some home remedies that can help treat corn and calluses.
1. Castor oil
Hydrate your feet with a little castor oil. Apply castor oil on corn at least three or four times a day and continue to do so until your skin returns to normal.
Take a fresh lemon and cut a slice of corn-sized lemon. Now, put it in the corn and seal it with a band aid or a polyethylene wrap. Let it spend the night. Use this remedy every night until the corn disappears.
Take a piece of garlic cove and rub it on the corn and let it rub the juices on the skin. Then, take another piece or make a paste of garlic and apply it on the corn and cover it with a band aid or rather with a bandage and leave it overnight.
4. Epsom salt
Soak your feet in a little warm water with Epsom salt for up to 20 minutes and let it soften your skin. Then take a pumice stone and rub the corn or callus and remove dead skin from your feet. The skin of the callus or callus is dead and this will help to clean and soften it.
Make a paste of licorice sticks and add some mustard oil. Make it soft and apply it on the corn and calluses before bedtime and rinse it in the morning for the best results. Use this remedy every day until the corn or calluses disappear.
