after application of corncaps will the corn comes out or degenerates itself or i have to cot or trim it.

Most of the time the corn would come out on its own after you apply good corn cap and follow the instructions properly (unless it is too stubborn). However in rare cases if it does come out then don't try to cut it or trim it at home as it can lead to infections.

Instead try the following home remedies to get rid of it -

  1. Soak your foot with corn in warm water for 15 minutes. This will help soften the skin, and then with the help of a pumice stone lightly wear away the dead skin.
  2. Before going to bed tie a fresh thin slice of lemon on the corn and take it off in the morning. This is a very effective remedy for corns.
  3. Apply papaya juice over the corn thrice daily, this will acts as an irritant and will help to treat corns.
  4. Keep your feet clean and moisturized to encourage the drainage of the corns.
  5. To avoid putting any pressure on corns wear thick soled and comfortable footwear.
