You can use those Corn Plasters on hard corns, but be careful that the acid in the plaster doesn't get on skin around the corn. These are tiny corns that tend to occur either singly or in clusters on the bottom of the foot.
Don't cut corns yourself, especially if you are elderly or diabetic, and don't use corn plasters or paints which can burn the healthy tissue around the corns. PEOPLE ARE TALKINGCallus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaThe location of soft corns tends to differ from that of hard corns.

A corn is simply an area of hard, thickened skin that can occur on the top, between, or on the tip of the toes. Corns and calluses form due to repeated friction and pressure, as the shoe (or ground) rubs against a bony prominence (bone spur) on the toe or foot. After an initial history and physical exam of your feet, x-rays will be needed to tell the whole story and determine why corns and calluses are developing. Corns and calluses almost always persist until corrective surgical measures are taken, so don't become discouraged if your efforts to prevent them are less than successful.

Corns may be the result of pressure from shoes that rub against the toes or cause friction between the toes. When this pressure becomes excessive, some areas of the skin thicken, in the form of corns and callus, as a protective response. Calluses and corns quite often have painful nerves and bursal sacs (fluid-filled balloons that act as shock absorbers) beneath them, causing symptoms ranging from sharp, shooting pain to dull, aching soreness. Your doctor is the expert in trimming down these areas of thick skin and will often apply comfortable padding to these painful corns and calluses. X-rays will often be taken to identify the specific bone problem that is causing the corn or callus.
Check their fit and discard any that have seams and stitching over painful corns or have worn out innersoles that offer too little protection for calluses on the ball and heel of your foot. The doctor may place a small marker on the corn before taking the x-ray, to make it's location visible on the x-ray.
Medication for inflammation may be utilized to treat the underlying injury and sometimes a cortisone injection into the underlying bursal sac will be recommended to rapidly reduce pain and swelling. Often corns and calluses will have to be trimmed on a regular basis to prevent them from hurting.

The finished x-ray will then show the location of the corn and the bone spur underneath that caused it. Eventually, you may desire corrective foot surgery by your podiatrist to straighten curled or contracted toes for corns or elevate and shorten metatarsals for calluses. Often toes curl under the neighboring toe (especially the smallest toe) causing corns to form. Many satisfied patients have remarked that surgery to remove the bone beneath the corn hurts less the very next day than on a painful day walking in their shoes with the corn present.
Attempting to file off the entire thickness of a corn or callus can result in a burn or abrasion. Non-medicated corn pads or moleskin (a thin fuzzy sheet of fabric with an adhesive back) can be purchased to protect corns and calluses, but should be removed carefully, so you do not tear the skin, and should only be worn for a day at a time.
