Corns usually are seen on the tops and sides of the toes. Seed Corns are clusters of tiny Corns that can be very tender if they’re on a weight-bearing part of the foot, and normally are seen on the bottom of the feet.

Baking Soda

Baking soda acts as a natural exfoliating agent that helps slough off surface dead skin covering the corn. Baking Soda has anti-bacterial and anti-fungal to keep your skin free from infections.

Instructions:

Measure 2 to 3 tablespoons of Baking Soda, and add to a bowl of warm water.

Soak feet in this mixture for 10 to 15 minutes.

Gently rub the affected area with a pumice stone to remove dead skin.

Repeat this process daily until the Corn dissipates.

 

If using Baking Soda by itself doesn’t seem to be working for you, add some Lemon:

Measure 1 teaspoon of Baking Soda and a couple squirts of fresh Lemon juice and a few drops of water into a small cup or bowl.

Stir to make a paste.

Apply the paste with a cotton swab to the Corn area. Cover with a gauze bandage and leave on overnight.

In the morning, rinse or wipe off the paste with warm water, then exfoliate with a pumice stone.

Perform daily until the Corn dissipates.

 

 

White Vinegar

White Vinegar is highly acidic, which will break down and soften hard skin. White vinegar also reduces infection risks as it’s anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.

Mix 1 part White Vinegar with 3 parts warm water in a small cup or bowl.

Just before going to bed, use a cotton ball to dab the Corn area several times with the mixture.

Apply coconut oil or olive oil to the Corn area to keep it soft.

Cover the area with a gauze bandage and leave on overnight.

Fresh PapayaFresh Papaya home remedy for Warts.

Papaya actually contains an enzyme that digests dead tissue, so it works nicely in facial peels and in this instance many use it for dissolving Warts.

Instructions:

Use an unripe Fresh Papaya.

Over a glass bowl, make shallow cuts with a knife on the Papaya surface, collecting the juice that dribbles out of the Papaya into the bowl.

Let the Papaya juice sit until it becomes semi-solid.

Gently stir a bit of warm water into the Papaya juice.

Apply the juice to the affected area at least twice a day, usually morning and at night.

Cover with a bandage. Repeat this process daily.

 

 

Apple Cider Vinegar
(use Bragg’s brand, with the mother)

Instructions:

Soak a cotton ball in Apple Cider Vinegar and apply to the Wart.

Place the soaked cotton ball (wring out gently) on the Wart area.

Wrap in a plastic wrap (like used in the kitchen) so the ACV will be sealed in.

Cover with a bandage.

Repeat this process every 12 to 24 hours for at least 1 week.

In a couple of days, you may notice swelling and/or feel some throbbing from the area, indicating the ACV is working to break down the Wart.

The Wart will most likely turn a blackish color. Repeat the process until the Wart dissipates, and continue with this treatment for at least week after the Wart has fallen off, to be sure it doesn’t return.
