I’ve used this product a few times – sadly, I’ve been the victim of ill-fitting shoes, so I thought I’d speak up for this remedy.
There aren’t good instructions in the packages, so I’ll simplify them for you:
1) Soak your feet in warm/hot water for 15 minutes. Dry off, allow another 15 minutes to dry.
2) Put the bandage on your corn(s), however many are needed. I believe the bandage stays on very well, others have complained of the opposite. Use your own stick-on bandage on top if the original isn’t enough.
3) Allow the salicylic acid in the remedy work on your corn for 48 hours.
4) Gently remove the bandage(s) – the corn that’s dissolved will probably be white in color. The dead skin will probably fall off with a little tug, but don’t force it off. Allow the dead skin to lift off – could be days before this happens.
5) Feel free to repeat the soaking process, and re-bandage if the corn doesn’t come right off.
– If the white “circles” on your feet lift off, there will be “fresh” pink tender skin underneath…the way Nature intended. That said, that new skin is very delicate, and you need to protect your feet from getting abraded, rubbed, chafed, or squished in your shoes, so take it easy. They do make “toe covers” with really thick gel, so I’d use those after you remove your corns. Allow that pink skin to heal.
– I would wait until the pink skin heals before getting a pedicure.
– Everybody’s corn situation is different. Some take a few treatments, some fall off when you remove the bandage after 48 hours. Mine are stubborn and have required 2 treatments, but whatever, I’m hardcore!
– Some dark-skinned users have reported back a discoloration, or hyper pigmentation. Please use caution.
– Whatever you do, be patient – corns take a lot of time to form, and some people have had them for YEARS! No matter, this remedy works, and I hope it works for you, too 🙂
