Corns are thickened skin burrowing down into our toes. Here are some cheap, safe and home made remedies to treat them.
- Circle the corn with a corn plaster, then fill the hole above the corn with crushed garlic. Tape over and round it with sellotape. Repeat till the corn softens and falls out.
- Try the same treatment using crushed fresh radish or radish juice.
- Fresh lemon juice will also work well. Save halves of lemon after you have squeezed the juice from them, scrabble your fingers in them. Even the skins of avocados make a soft cream for your hands to soften them.
