For those that are lucky to have avoided foot corns, here is a brief explanation of what they are and what causes them.
Corns develop from a more severe stage of callus, commonly occurring on the feet where the skin is thin and smooth.
Although they can develop as a result of ill-fitting or tight shoes, depending on the person, corns can also be the result of standing for long periods of time or repeat pressure from exercise. People with scarring, damaged sweat glands, warts, or hammertoes are at increased risk of developing corns, but poor circulation can also lead to these hard raised bumps. At the early stages of a corn, it helps to exfoliate and massage the area of sensitivity to remove dead and hardened skin to reduce the pain and speed up recovery time.

Each night before bed, soak your feet in moderately hot salt water for up to 15 minutes to soften the skin and relax tense muscles in the foot. Taking a cotton ball, dip it in castor oil and place it over the corn, securing with tape or a heavy duty band aid.
In the morning use your pumice stone to exfoliate the softened skin around the corn and apply coconut oil to keep it moisturized. Additionally you can mix baking soda with lemon juice to create a thick paste which you can apply to the corn and leave overnight. Alternatively you can crush the glove into a paste and mix with salt and apply to the corn to absorb for up to three days.

On the last day, you should see a drastic improvement and the corn may even come off with the bandage.
Licorice root is considered the number one remedy for foot corns in Ayurvedic medicine because of its powerful healing properties.
With intense anti-inflammatory properties, turmeric will ease the swelling and pain of corns, from inside and out.
